Welcome! I'm Katie and I'm a Transformational Life and Success Coach. I help women who are ready to reach into their full potential, achieve the success they want, and free themselves from whatever is holding them back, all while maintaining some healthy balance in their lives.
I came to coaching after 10 years as a family law attorney. As an attorney, I found that my interests were more in helping people discover their potential, and less about taking on their fight. I worked with many women going through major life transitions. Very rarely did these clients have much in the way of support to help them navigate their new chapter in life. And very rarely did they make themselves a priority during this time. My big takeaway from this was that women in general do very little to make themselves a priority.
But the truth is, that wasn't enough for me to make the switch from attorney to coach. Yes, I recognized the need for coaching services, but I wasn't sure how to get there. Then I had my son, and after coming back from maternity leave I recognized I was pretty miserable. I loved my baby, I loved being a mother, and I loved watching my husband be a father, but I was barely surviving. I recognize now that I had postpartum depression that was also fueled by a diet that didn't work for me, a job that I wasn't happy in, and me continuing to ignore a calling towards a different career path. When I went back to work, this all became very obvious to me; that it was time to make a change. I reached out to my own wellness coach, and that seemingly small step helped start me down the path to where I am today. I am now a Certified Health and Life Coach and I am excited to help you on your own journey!
But that’s just one thing about me. I am also a mother, a wife, a sister, a traditional foods enthusiast, and an early adopter of all things organic. In fact, my friends called me "Amish" in college. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, where I now call the Portland/Vancouver area my home. I love to cook, travel, and listen to podcasts while taking long walks around our town. I especially love to spend time with my son, my husband, and our golden retriever.
