If there's wild weather, Katherine will cover it, including nor'easters, blizzards, and Superstorm Sandy in 2012.

She also loves telling stories about all of the wonderful things happening in our local schools and community centers.

Before arriving in Philadelphia, Katherine was an anchor and reporter for News 12 The Bronx and Brooklyn, worked at the Athens Olympics, and was an NBC Page.
