Katrina Hadley is a storyboard artist for My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. She is credited as storyboard artist/revisionist for My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, the Rainbow Rocks encore shorts (for which she also served as a collaborative writer), season five, and My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Friendship Games. Hadley is also an assistant director on My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Legend of Everfree and a co-director on the half-hour Equestria Girls specials.

Hadley's involvement with the series began with Rainbow Rocks; her prior storyboarding work with DHX Media was on Packages from Planet X. She became involved in the series through director Jim Miller, who recommended Hadley to producer Sarah Wall.[1]

Among Hadley's favorite scenes in the series and films to storyboard include Twilight Sparkle and Sunset Shimmer's kitchen scene in Rainbow Rocks[2] and Pinkie Pie's muffin indigestion scene in The Cutie Map - Part 1.[3] She also personally storyboarded the Lyra Heartstrings/Sweetie Drops, Steven Magnet, and DJ Pon-3/Octavia Melody scenes in Slice of Life.[4]

The closing credits for Rainbow Rocks features illustrations of the main cast and various supporting characters drawn by Hadley;[5] the inclusion of these illustrations was at Hadley's own request.[6]

In Slice of Life, Hadley herself makes a cameo appearance wearing a pink rubber horse mask alongside Jim Miller, Jayson Thiessen, Ishi Rudell, and Timothy Packford.[7] Her likeness is also used for the female director in the My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Better Together short Road Trippin.

Hadley's professional credits include being a clean-up artist at Atomic Cartoons, a storyboard revisionist for Bardel Entertainment on Edgar & Ellen, a storyboard director for Nerd Corps Entertainment on several Monster High television specials, and an artist for educational software tools by LeapFrog Enterprises.
