When originally asked if she liked Steely Dan, Katie lied (you could see it in her eyes). However, since joining Stanley Dee, she has learned to appreciate and enjoy the Dan catalogue. Katie has yet to have the opportunity to drink Kirschwasser from a shell, in the Manatee Bar, despite repeated promises.
She has a quiet, amenable and unassuming nature, which makes Katie the obvious choice for band diplomat.
Katie met most of her Stanley Dee cohorts through the annual Pepper Summer Shows, in which she is one of the Musical Directors. She uses these skills to arrange all the Stanley Dee vocal harmonies.
