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.
