Katie Barberi began her professional career at age ten. After having sustained a successful career as a teenaged actress in Hollywood, she then embarked on a second career: acting in Latin-American "telenovelas." It is a little known fact that Latin "soaps" are actually aired in over 40 countries as prime-time series. This afforded Katie the opportunity to become a very well known prime-time actress in the Latin market. She is 100% bilingual (English and Spanish) and is very grateful to have the benefits of being a part of two different cultures. Katie is currently in Miami filming starring roles in "Mi Corazon Insiste" for Telemundo, airing nationwide on May 23, 2011 at 8:00pm on Telemundo, as well as "Grachi" for Nickelodeon Latinamerica, airing Internationally on May 2, 2011 on Nickelodeon International Network.
