Katana Howard starting playing rugby at age 17 when a classmate in her precalculus class suggested it. Howard played softball for four years, soccer for 14 years, as well as basketball for eight years and made an easy transition to rugby.

In 2013 she was named to the USA Under-20s and represented the United States on the U20s tour to England. A year later, Howard helped the Twin City Amazons make it to the semifinals of the 2014 Women's Premier League Championships.

Howard was selected to start with the U.S. Women's National Team in their historic first-ever matchup with Barbarian F.C. in April of 2019. In June of that year, she officially earned her first cap against England in the opening round of Women's Rugby Super Series in Chula Vista, CA.
