While at BU, she sang in the salsa and Latin jazz ensemble Presencia, she co-founded and performed in the Greek dance troupe Φιλική Εταιρεία, and she was deeply involved in the Classics department’s annual Aristophanes (and later, Plautus) adaptation as writer, cast, and crew. Katrice earned her Master of Arts in Ethnomusicology from Wesleyan University, where she wrote a thesis on frontwomen in alternative metal bands and traveled to Indonesia to perform in the International Gamelan Festival.
Outside of work, Katrice enjoys spending time with her cats, Freya and Merlin, and her dog Prue. She loves animals and rides horses at Horseshoe Hill Equestrian Center in Durham, CT. She also organizes a weekly arts and crafts session, Wednesday Friendsday Art Night (WFAN), in various locations around New Haven.
