I had the pleasure of taking Katie's "Auditioning for the Camera" workshop while starting my "camera" acting career early this year (2017). Let me tell you... SHE IS AMAZING! Her style and delivery was a perfect fit for all of the members of the class, which were from early teens to 50+! In addition to the age variance of class participants, was experience levels as well. We had union and non-union, complete rookies to experienced professionals, yet each week every one of us had some great feedback to build on. Being one of those 50+ class members, I have taken tons of workshops and classes over the years for my theater endeavors. So I have quite a lot of teaching styles to compare her's to, and her's is the BEST! Her experience and insight into the industry allows her to not only deliver theory to her students, but REALITY as well. Besides the amazing acting and prep training we received, she also supplied the class with all kinds of industry resources for us to use (contact info for Casting Directors, Talent Agencies, Photographers, Managers, etc) throughout the Mid-Atlantic area. She had industry guests that added to our feedback and training. I truly can't say enough positive things about taking Katie's classes. One thing I know for sure, I will continue to train with Katie throughout my new TV, Film, Commercial, & Industrial career!!!

She will give you honest, supportive feedback, shaping you into a more confident and prepared actor so when you walk into the audition you're truly ready.

Katie has a gift for coaching. Her classes are comprised of actors at all levels, yet she tailors her feedback precisely to each person, and it is awe-inspiring to see how her guidance hones each and every one's skills. I have taken many acting classes, yet Katie introduced concepts I had not yet heard. I have gained not only invaluable techniques and tools, but increased confidence under her tutelage. What makes Katie unique is an earnest desire to see every one of her students succeed. Katie connects with her students on a personal level, serving not only as a coach, but a cheerleader as well. Katie's coaching is hard to sufficiently describe in words, so I encourage anyone to take her class and experience it first hand!

This was the Best class and Experience for My first time acting and also had people that were not new to acting. Helped everyone and soared my acting hobby in background to get daily and weekly email notices and acting for a career. Will get you on the right track for getting auditions and the right people to talk to and not get scammed. I now am better aware what casting people are looking for and what to expect in acting so you don't get nervous. She will help you fix your problem if you have stage freight or camera shy.

I dont normally do this but I just cant help myself today. Ive been studying with Katie for a few months now and the results are staggering. Katie is so tuned in with what CD's are looking for and her ability to communicate that to the actor is her specialty. Her adjustments are unlike any others ive heard and our discussions have been most enlightening. If you're looking for a completely different outlook on acting, then look no further..absolutely 4 or 5 stars..

Katie gives you a work-out - she offers very different ways of approaching a scene for an audition than I've been exposed to before. She will challenge your "acting" muscles whether you're a beginner or experienced actor. I love it!

I've had a couple of video auditions recently that I don't think went well, so I went for Katie's class held at Kymberly Skyrme's office. I've seen a number of acting for video classes offered over the years and I've always heard that video is totally different from stage and this class looked more authoritative than most. And it really was authoritative! Katie knows how to make your one minute or so with the casting director efficient and effective. Above all, not shooting yourself in the foot. And what that means varies a lot with the type of part you're going for. Katie is an old hand and, I should point out, not a theoretician. Rather it's like "I was there, on both sides, and this is what happens. It is what it is." kind of thing. In really major markets. She's also just a lot of fun to listen to, and when she acts a little, showing you what she means, it's very clear that she is a high precision actor. So, recommended.

I am a fairly new actor and enrolled in Katie's Auditioning For The Camera Workshop. What a fantastic investment of time and money! Katie's insight and straight forward feedback was exactly what I needed. The exercises focused on becoming more comfortable for auditions. I learned about body movement, voice control, different thought processes, just to name a few. Katie has some unique insight from her ongoing professional acting experience I found encouraging and helpful. I would highly recommend Katie for her coaching classes.

I come from a lifetime of stage acting. I've always wanted to take the leap to TV/Film, but was looking for guidance on how to do so smoothly. Katie's class "Auditioning for the Camera" was incredibly helpful! I was introduced to skills I knew I needed to learn and those I was completely unaware of. Katie is an effective, efficient instructor and I recommend anyone and all to take her classes!

Acting has always been a dream of mine that I never felt confident enough to pursue. For over 20 years I have been working with people and for people in my career as a psychotherapist. in the fall I was able to check off one of my bucket list items and realized at that point I wanted to pursue my dream. I learned so much professionally and personally from Katie and can't imagine not having her as a part of my life. I look forward to her class every week not only to gain knowledge and learn techniques, but to build a wonderful circle of friends. I look forward to and plan on taking any and all classes/coaching that she offers.

I am a very new to the acting business. When I first walked into the room I was nervous and unsure of what to do, where to look, ect. Katie was very helpful and worked with each of her students one on one! I learned a range of things from what to do with my body language, the volume of my voice and just being more believeable in front of the camera! I highly recommend Katie! She is a great coach!

Actors need to take classes to stay on top of their game and ready for auditions; and Katie's classes are an excellent way to go! Come prepared to work in and outside of class! Of course, there's the extra benefits of showcasing, networking, and just being in a very supportive environment. Go Katie!

Katie is beyond a great teacher and coach! As a brand new, young actor, I learned so many things from Katie ranging from being more truthful in my craft as well as certain techniques to utilize in front of the camera during auditions. I feel alot more confident as an actor after her class, I definitely recommend her!
