Kathleen was born in Germany, raised in Portland, Oregon, and now calls NYC her home. A graduate of Marymount Manhattan College, Kathleen’s career was given a kick start when she challenged for the Role of Sandy on NBC’s "GREASE: You’re the One That I Want". After roles like Elle Woods in the National Tour of Legally Blonde The Musical and Dede Halcyon- Day in Tales of The City The Musical, Kathleen made her Broadway debut originating the role of Heather Stovall in Hands On A Hardbody.
This summer, Kathleen completed filming on the comedy feature AMERICAN REJECT, which she wrote and starred in. The film is based on her true experience as a reality show contestant and shines a light on what really happens once you’re voted America’s least favorite. Directed by Marlo Hunter, the film also stars Keala Settle, Rebecca Black, Angelica Hale, Mary Birdsong and Annaleigh Ashford.
