Katy Grace Hunter (formerly Hart, née Clutterbucket) is a recurring character on Girl Meets World and the mother of Maya Hart. For Career Day at school, Katy reveals to Maya's class that she has aspirations of becoming an actress; however, she works as a waitress. Katy frequently failed to show up to any event of importance to Maya, believing herself to be a hindrance to her daughter's future until Shawn showed her how important she was to Maya. Her relationship with Maya is reminiscent to that of Shawn and Chet Hunter from Boy Meets World. She is portrayed by Cheryl Texiera.


Katy is the mother of Maya. She works as a waitress for Topanga's (formerly the Nighthawk Diner), while she attends numerous auditions, vying for her big break to fulfill her dreams of becoming an actress. Her ex-husband left her and her daughter when Maya was very young.


Katy exhibits a bright, chipper personality to mask her insecurities. She also tends to give others the impression her life is better than it really is, but Maya is well-aware of the reality. While Katy truly loves Maya, she does not spend much time with her, as Katy fears her very presence will drag Maya down to her own self-perceived lowly level, and wants better for Maya than "to come home with her little arms covered in pancake syrup." She also believes that the Matthews' are a far better influence on Maya than she will ever be. Although she is aware of her acting limitations, Katy still has hopes of being discovered.
