Kat Merrigan was born and raised in New York. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and spent twenty years in the marketing field creating successful print and multimedia advertising campaigns for various corporations. Having grown weary of the business world, she went back to school, earned an associate degree in applied science, and is currently a licensed physical therapist assistant.
Kat has spent her life writing, whether it was for campaigns, company newsletters, or skits, sketches and plays for various local productions. If all the world’s a stage, Kat spends a great deal of time there. As a member of a church choir she was able to boast that she performed from Radio City Music Hall to Ryker’s Island, as well as Long Island’s famous Jones Beach. Her most recent project was Kat and Andee Far From Normal, a hope-filled, humorous podcast that she started with a close friend as a reaction to all the changes of 2020.
Kat realizes that life is challenging which is why she decided a long time ago to not take herself too seriously. She is a firm believer in finding humor at all times, especially when it seems in short supply. Comedy with a side of sarcastic wit is her favorite dish. When one of her nephews was little he proudly labeled her the “funny channel.”
What sustains Kat through the hard times is her faith. For the past twenty-six years, she has been a dedicated Christian. Her greatest desire is that her gifts of writing and humor will be a blessing and help inspire others.
