Olivia Nicole Burnette (born March 24, 1977) appears as Katie Beckett, Dr. Sam Beckett's little sister in the episode of Quantum Leap titled "The Leap Home: Part 1". A former child actress, Olivia has continued to get good roles as an adult actor.
She began her career at age six. Perhaps her most famous role was that of Dorothy Jane Torkelson on the NBC sitcom The Torkelsons, later renamed Almost Home.

Burnette also produced the short film, Mountain Cry.
She resides in southern California with her husband, singer/songwriter/producer Julian Sakata, and her five-year-old stepson, Rain.
