She went on to earn a degree in Information Technology New Media, and was recently honored with the 2011 distinguished alumni award at RIT.

She also worked alongside Lady Gaga as spokesperson and presenter for Polaroid at CES. Additional promo work included an appearance in a series of Lincoln commercials/webisodes, which gained traction online and also on in-flight screens across the country. Currently, Katie continues contribute to the CBS The Early Show and CNN Newsroom, discussing everything from the politics of internet privacy to the hottest new consumer electronics. She's also the resident tech expert for The Nate Berkus Show.
Katie has showcased her expertise on the Style Network, ABC News Now, LXTV and AOL.com. She has blogged for Oprah.com, The Nate Berkus Show and DELL, and worked with HP on a multimedia project. Katie spent two years as HSN's resident tech expert and accrued over 20 million in sales for the network. One of her favorite roles was as the co-host of A&E's Emmy-nominated series "We Mean Business", where she teamed up with Bill Rancic and Peter Gurski to rehabilitate struggling small businesses with tech, business and style makeovers.
Katie has been featured in People Style Watch, Fitness, Forbes.com, Journal News, the New York Daily News, Marie Claire and The Chicago Tribune, amongst others. She hails from suburban Pennsylvania where she's the youngest of four girls, and currently lives in New York City, where she's studied with the top professionals for hosting, voice and improv (at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater).
