Kathy's Story

Born in Atlanta, GA in the 1960s, I grew up in a Catholic family. My childhood was fairly “normal” being the oldest of 4. My family was transferred to Richmond in the late 1970s, I finished high school, went on to attend college, married a Richmonder, started a successful marketing business, and had three beautiful children. My business was awarded accolades and I taught Sunday school. It all looked very lovely, yet I felt totally unfulfilled.

I had been on a path of personal development from my early teens, but in those early years I had no self-confidence, authenticity, or understanding of my worth. I was a people pleaser, saying YES when I wanted to say NO. Or more often than not, I had absolutely no idea of what I really wanted except that I was striving for perfectionism and was afraid to truly be seen. I was voiceless and felt I was without merit.

My spiritual journey really started when I could start dealing with challenges and not perfection. I divorced, ran a marathon, and navigated the diagnosis of leukemia in my eleven-year-old daughter.  I staged a really brief second marriage all from the PICU. Another divorce really brought me introspection. I finally started to become vulnerable, including looking at my shadows. I had more years of business, toxic relationships, cancer relapses, and elder care to navigate. There were many highlights and I made many mistakes. 

I always wanted to start a coaching business to share what I was living and learning and, particularly, how to navigate difficult scenarios and emotions, find self-worth, and love and fulfill life’s desires. I am so blessed to finally answer the call of my life purpose…I am a life coach in the business of helping others!
