Who is Katherine Izzo from ‘The Bachelor’ 2023 with Zach Shallcross?

Katherine’s official ABC bio describes her as “a vibrant go-getter with a witty sense of humor and a glass-half-full attitude.” It also adds that Katherine prioritizes family and loves spending time with her nieces and nephews. She wants a family of her own one day, so let’s hope Zach’s in the same boat!

Katherine’s “number one priority” right now is finding her perfect match. Her bio concludes by saying, “Katherine’s dream man is loyal, trustworthy, a great communicator and, most importantly, her best friend. She is looking for a real man who will enhance her life, and she’s ready to put it all on the line to pursue love.”

As for the “fun facts” undoubtedly made up by ABC producers, they include the fact that people always tell Katherine she looks like Julia Roberts and she prefers “glamping” over camping. Finally, she loves a good breakfast pastry. (Who doesn’t, Katherine?)

How old is Katherine Izzo, and what does she do for a living?

At 26 years old, Katherine calls Tampa, Florida, home. In Tampa, she works as a registered nurse, and she says her job is “incredibly important to her.” Katherine’s LinkedIn profile lists her place of employment as the Moffitt Cancer Center. The profile also adds that Katherine received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of South Florida in 2019, and she’s currently working toward her Masters at South University.
