Kat moved to the USA from South Africa with her family in pursuit of living the American Dream. Her first stop was in South Florida and it was from there that she came to study at the University of Florida.
As a recent graduate from UF in May 2017 with a honors degree in Telecommunication, she didn’t want to leave the Gator nation and is now happy to call WGFL- CBS 4 her home. While gaining her degree she was immersed in a vast amount of news scenarios with reporting and anchoring at the University’s station WUFT and did a stint as an on air radio host with a summer internship program. She has been bitten by the “journalism bug” and is so happy to have been given the opportunity to bring the news into the living rooms of local residents. That being said she is also enjoying coming face to face with her community and reporting on major events and increasing communication in our area.
When not in front of the camera Kat likes to explore and let her eyes capture places and customs both nationally and internationally. She studied journalism in both Berlin and Florence and definitely has a case of the wanderlust. Her other interests include keeping fit and she has taken up running since living in Gainesville as well as exploring the trails. She also likes to spend time in the gym, is quite a movie buff and enjoys the company of friends, finding restaurants and eclectic haunts!
She is thankful to be a part of the CBS 4 team and getting to know the other side of Gainesville as an Alumna.
