After completing a Zoology degree at the University of Durham and a Masters in Biodiversity and Conservation down in the wilds of Cornwall, Kathryn moved to London to study for a second Masters, and ended up staying put for a few years. It was here that her love of theatre, and in particular musicals, truly blossomed. She crammed in as many theatre trips as possible before moving back home to Geneva to work with the communications team of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Her addiction to the West End has not been suppressed, however, and she makes regular trips back to London for her theatre fix, and now enjoys writing the odd thesp-related article for BroadwayWorld UK in her spare time.
