Celebrating humanity through empathy, humor, and wholesome bad-assery.
For those of you wondering, the j sounds like a y.
No stranger to music, Katja was born and raised in a loud, boisterous Puerto Rican household in which she sang and played instruments before she discovered her love for the theatre. She is a native of Houston, Texas and began her training through The Humphrey's School of Musical Theatre at TUTS. She went on to receive her BFA in Musical Theatre from The University of Oklahoma and will be based out of NYC this coming fall.
She has never met a stranger and, in her free time, enjoys rock climbing, spending time outdoors, rereading the Harry Potter books, and painting.
She is a proud member of Actor's Equity Association.
What's She up to?
"Her voice is strong and pure, which immediately captivates the audience. Nothing Could have been better than Yanko's Performance."
