Along with her studies and continual growth, Katie has been working very closely with Recording Artists Development, Inc., a non-profit organization that helps artists bring their visions to life and is on the education team of Female Frequency an organization of promoting women in all areas of the music-making process and fighting the erasure of their contributions.
