Katrina discovered her penchant for filmmaking early on while making Celine Dion music videos on the weekends with her grandfather’s  - technically advanced at the time - 8mm video camera. Naturally, she took on the role of the director - meaning she seized the camera and enjoyed bossing her friends around.

Soon after the Celine Dion phase passed, she was able to finesse her skills at Victoria School of the Performing and Visual Arts. There she learned the practical application of what had previously been a hobby, and was given the opportunity to work on her first professional set the age of fourteen - an experience that would profoundly impact her future.

Her passion for filmmaking grew. Every spare moment was spent in the school’s studio, working on short films, commercials, educational videos, television broadcasts, and any other film related experience she could get her hands on.

Upon graduating from highschool, there was no other option for Katrina - she was going to make movies. With an already extensive skill set and resume, she attended the University of Alberta, studying Film History, before moving to Montreal to complete a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Production at Concordia University’s Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema.

Her time at Concordia University was spent exploring her creativity as a writer/director/producer, as well as developing her technical skills in pre and post-production. She discovered her knowledge of filmmaking and organizational skills are the perfect combination for production management and assistant directing, and her love of storytelling provides her with a natural aptitude for editing. She graduated from the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema with distinction standing, having achieved the Richard Renaud Award for Outstanding Achievement in Film Production.

Upon returning to Edmonton, Katrina delved into the film community, working on a variety of projects from corporate and educational videos, to music videos, documentaries, and narrative fiction. Within a year of her return to Edmonton, she played a key role in the production of two feature films - acting as the Assistant Director for the AMPIA nominated feature film Stitches, and the Editor for the film Unfinished Business.

She continues to play and active role in the Edmonton film community, recently acting as Associate Producer and Casting Director for the feature film Money, to be released later this year. Currently she is producing a short narrative entitled No Sharp Objects and completing post-production on a documentary feature about holocaust survivor Zev Kedem.
