Katie Kane

By day Katie is an opinionated management accountant working for a large multinational organization. By night she is a wannabe vigilante mercilessly patrolling the streets of Glasgow… or at least she would be if she could put down the cocoa and comic books. Katie uses her powers of compulsive planning, touch-typing and ability to prioritize the bottom line for the forces of good! She sits on many an LGBT committee and has been known to blaze a trail when the campaign calls. Katie’s weaknesses include a good Malbec, political/economic discussions and the Irish.
