Love from our students  

Getting to attend Katie's classes as a teen, and now being able to work with her as an adult, has truly been the gift of a lifetime. Katie pushed me the way other teachers did not. She has a way of getting to the root of a person's spirit, while wading through the angst of what being a teenager is. She is patient, kind, hilarious, and a master teacher. Without Katie's classes I would not have had the confidence in my acting skills to play a lead in a feature. You will not regret signing up.

I know what it’s like to dream about being an actor but not know how to get there. I also understand how scary and uncertain it feels to take those first steps without fully knowing if you’re on the right path.

Working in the film industry for over 22 years as an actor, producer, writer and director on major network roles (Netflix, NBC, IFC, Showtime) has allowed me to see that the ones who succeed in this industry are the ones who never stop growing. They always ask themselves “What Next?”

Continuously training naturally keeps you on the right path, helps you reach your next milestone and will separate you from everyone else with a dream. I know it sounds simple, but it was true from being a little girl with a dream to training with top professionals in NY/LA/Portland to landing my first role in a Paramount Picture film to recently winning an Emmy…and it’s still true to this day.

As Founder of Acting for Kids & Teens school in Portland, I’ve successfully trained hundreds of actors and have watched them grow in confidence and land TV/Film roles. For the first time, we are going GLOBAL with this training so your child can develop those key skills to act for TV/Film, survive the business, and have more FUN!
