Katrina joined WMAR in September of 2013. Before joining the team, she worked in Winchester, Va.
Where else have you worked and what was your oddest job?
My previous job was in Winchester at TV3. Before that, I worked as a production assistant at WHDH in Boston and an intern at NESN during college. I've worked as a tennis coach since I was 14 for many summers.I haven't really had too many odd jobs. Perhaps the strangest was in college when I worked at Victoria's Secret. It got a little odd at times. I'll just leave it at that.
What are you most proud of when it comes to your work?
I'm most proud of the relationships I build and interactions with people I'm interviewing or just meet during my stories. I meet some really impressive, powerful, strong, inspiring and interesting people in this job. Talking to and spending time with someone different every day is a lot of fun. Feeling like I've actually had an impact on their life by telling their story is beyond a bonus.
Interesting fact(s) about your personal life?
If I wasn't a reporter, I would definitely be doing something with tennis. I've been playing since I was 6 and competed up through college at Rutgers University. Go Knights! I strongly believe it's the best sport out there!
What do you love about living in the Baltimore area?
I really enjoy exploring the different neighborhoods around the city and I love the pride people have in where they are from.
Favorite local hangouts?
I really took a quick liking to Fells Point. I love the history of it and how pretty it is, day or night.
Apps you can't live without?
I keep my phone pretty simple. My 'must-checks' every day are my ABC2 News app to keep up on everything and the Storm Shield app for weather. Other than that, I need my Pandora app for working out. And Maps. I don't think I would get anywhere if I didn't GPS it.
