Back home in North Carolina, where she was raised by her father Keith Garner and mother Carr Garner, Katie had already interned with local news companies including WBTV News 3, ABC News, News 14 Carolina, WWAY, and she also worked as a Christmas Eve reporter at the age of nineteen for WXII News 12.

Currently, Katie is working for WSYX/WTTE ABC 6/FOX 28 out of Columbus Ohio as a Morning Personality on Good Day Columbus. She says the new position is all a part of God's plan, and she loves living and working in Ohio.
