“I look so pale today. I do every day, but sometimes I force a tan out of it.”

“'Hip-Hop for Dogs' is important to me because I love hip hop and I love dogs.”

Personal Bio:

Katie grew up in Bristol, Tennessee, where she often visits her loved ones. She has a chipoo (chihuahua-poodle mix) named Willa Mae who is very special and complex. Katie aims to be open-minded and accepting at all times. She loves rap music with exceptional lyrics and a good word search—she can probably finish one faster than anyone you know.
