Katie Lynn McDowell Bio in her own words
Bios are not my favorite as I believe that they are self-serving. As a result, I wrote this in first person. When I was younger my idol was Florence Nightingale. I believe that she was knowledgeable beyond her time. “And so the world put back by the death of everyone who has to sacrifice the development of his or her peculiar gifts (which were meant, not for selfish gratification, but for the improvement of the world) to conventionality.” I believe that the world revolves around healing. We are always striving for something and through that there is healing. Currently, I have a BSN degree. Soon after I achieved my BSN I discovered that what I went to school for was something that I didn’t want to pursue anymore.
The most influential acting instructor for me is Kimberly Busbee from Des Moines, IA. In IA I worked on multiple independent films. “The Vindication of Ronald Clay” being my favorite. Later, I got accepted into the Tom Todoroff Conservatory in NY and continued my acting studies further. Through acting I began to rediscover myself in a new way and I discovered the healing power of acting. I discovered that healing was not limited to being a nurse or working in the medical profession. Through acting I believe that I have the ability to reach out and heal people on an even larger scale than when I was an RN. When I walk into an auditorium or on set I feel encapsulated by a certain quintessential charm and mystery that each set holds. There is no greater truth for me. Acting is where my heart is and I encourage you all to go where your heart leads you and follow your joy.
