Born and raised in Fremont, California, Katrina Jo began modeling and dancing at the age of three. Over the course of the next fifteen years she trained in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Pointe, Lyrical, Modern and Hip-Hop dance styles at a premier performing arts studio in northern California. Her talent and abilities were quickly recognized, earning her national awards including "Ms. Teen Dance", "Ms. Dance USA" in addition to several for her choreography. Continuing her pursuit of dance Katrina enrolled at Orange Coast College as a Dance major and was both a member and captain of the OCC Competitive Dance Team. She then attended Argosy University with a major in Liberal Arts.
Following college Katrina earned a spot with the San Diego Charger Girls where she performed for three seasons while serving as team captain and Pro Bowl nominee for two seasons. After relocating to Los Angeles in 2009, Katrina was selected as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers Spirit Dance Team where she would remain for four seasons - leading the team as one of their captains for two. Simultaneously Katrina brought her skills to bear by choreographing for other southern California dance teams including the San Diego Charger Girls, Los Angeles Clippers Spirit, UCLA, Golden Hawks, and UC Riverside in addition to countless dance studios. Her prowess and public profile made her a desirable judge for dance competitions such as the Pro Cheer Competition and Jam Fest Japan.
Sports and competitive dance aside, Katrina's dance background has also made her a sought after talent by many top performing artists and television studios. Having signed with Los Angeles based BLOC Dance Agency in 2004, she has been featured in a bevy of television shows, commercials and ad campaigns while also performing with the likes of Kaskade, T.I., Ludacris, Mariah Carey, Missy Elliot, The Pussycat Dolls and others.

Recently she signed to Triniti Management and Aqua Commercial Agency to facilitate further pursuits in the acting and advertising worlds.
Outside of her extensive experience in the entertainment industry Katrina also wields a healthy entrepreneurial sprit.
