Katherine is an artist, designer, model, and social entrepreneur based in New York City.
She began her career as a fashion model, discovered by photographer Patrick Demarchelier after earning her degree from Villanova University's School of Business. She has been featured in work in international fashion markets.
Katherine left the fashion world in a move which was featured on CNN World News. She left her private sector career to pursue her U.S. government teaching certification simultaneously with work as a schoolteacher of immigrant children in an inner city for over five years. An artist since childhood, she developed a series of decorative arts and jewelry during this time which was featured in a show at an art gallery in Europe and has been shown in a variety of locations and worn by public figures.
She continues her jewelry and art designs which express her interest in global culture, having worked with global artisans including those in Kabul, Afghanistan; Cape Town, South Africa. and New York City. She has recently launched Parré Chocolat, an ethical luxury brand.
