She first appeared on a Pinoy TV show as a contestant in the first season of GMA network's talent search reality TV hit show "Starstruck" back in 2003. Although, she ended getting eliminated midway of the season, she did manage to get some massive appeal to the male viewers with her very sexy and seductive image. She was then later signed to an exclusive talent contract together with all the other contestants who joined "Starstruck" as anticipated emerging GMA new talents.

Katrina appeared on her first few number of different GMA TV shows such as "Stage 1: The Starstruck Playhouse", "SOP Gigsters", "Joyride", "Forever in My Heart" and a couple of episodes in "Love To Love". She appeared on primetime TV sitcom for the first time as a cast in "Darna"(Angel Locsin as Darna) playing a role of a Villain "Carol the Black Darna". She then followed it with different primetime TV shows such as "Majika", "Atlantika", "Lupin", "Marimar", "Obra", "Gagambino", "Rosalinda" and the second coming of "Darna"(Marian Rivera as Darna) in GMA.

She also appeared for a couple of TV episode shows in "Sine Novela" and "Bitoy's Funniest Videos". She also appeared on Q-TV network's TV show "Ang Ganda ng Lola Ko" and a host in GMA's noontime show "Party Pilipinas". She's currently appearing on the Primetime TV show "Panday Kids" and "Langit sa Piling Mo".

Katrina both graced the cover of top prestigious magazines such as "FHM" and "Maxim Philippines" where she both won the title twice in a row as one of the sexiest woman in the Philippines from 2006 to 2007. She was recently caught in a sex tape scandal controversy where she was secretly filmed by his then partner Dr. Hayden Kho that eventually went to a messy court hearing battle, becoming a Philippine media frenzy at that time in 2009. She's now featured in the "Queue" magazine with a title "Surviving Hurricane Katrina" where it symbolizes her survival in career and life after the infamous scandal.
