Katrina Weidman is a senior at Penn State earning a dual degree in Integrative arts with an emphasis in music production and Theatre with an emphasis in performance. She originally wasn't going to attend college, but after dropping a friend off at University Park and seeing the campus, she knew it was where she belonged. The next day she signed up for classes at Bucks County Community College, which she attended for two years before transferring to Penn State University Park in 2004. Besides being an investigator for the Paranormal Research Society, she's been a member of the Penn State Snowboard club since 2004. In 2005 she joined The Lion 90.7 fm as a co-host for a variety of shows and voice over work.
She was born and raised in Bucks County, PA along with an older sister and a younger brother. She was born into an artistic family - both of her parents perform in their spare time and her mother writes original musicals for local playhouses. Some of her earliest memories are watching her mother and father tap dance together on stage; this also coincides with some of her strangest memories of her father dressed in drag for multiple shows. "Either way, my parents helped to shape my love and appreciation for performance art, which is why I'm a performer; I guess you could say it's in my blood."
Besides theatre, Katrina writes her own music. At the age of 11, she taught herself how to play piano. She learned how to play songs by ear and it lead into writing her own music. In 2003 she co-wrote a song with her mother for her first original musical called "Curtain Call for Murder."
"As long as I can remember I've had an interest in the paranormal," says Katrina. "I knew Penn State was a perfect fit, not only did they offer majors that fit my wants and needs, but they had a paranormal club. I joined the club in 2006 and went through extensive training to become an investigator. I absolutely love every minute of what I do. I get to help people, learn about the paranormal, work with amazing people, and now that we have a show with A&E I get to work in the entertainment world as well. "
When she has free time outside of school and PRS, she enjoys snowboarding, singing, dancing, cooking, knitting, coloring, working out, music, the beach, playing piano, going out with friends, her family, animals and driving. She's also always up for a good movie and nap on the couch.
