In 2006 Kathryn received a B.A. in History and Ancient Mediterranean Studies from Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She also studied for a semester at the American University in Cairo, taking many courses in Egyptology. Her honors thesis at Coe focused on the ethnic and cultural relationships of Ptolemaic Egypt. She graduated with an M.A. in Classics with an emphasis on archaeology from the University of Arizona in 2008. Her Master's thesis also concentrated on Ptolemaic Egypt, this time on the iconography used by the Queens of that era. From 2009-2011 she taught History and Humanities at Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona. Her fieldwork includes one season with the South Asasif Conservation Project on the Theban West Bank, and five seasons with the Mt. Lykaion Excavation and Survey Project in Arcadia, Greece, where she served as a trench supervisor for three years. Kathryn's main research interests include Greek Art and Archaeology, the Hellenistic world, especially Egypt, Macedonia, and Bactria, cultural interactions and the harmony and tensions they can produce, frontier states, iconography and propaganda, and she currently has a growing interest in numismatics.
