More about Kate


In your life journey or career, how many rules have you bent along the way? For Kate it’s been quite a few.

In her thirties, she was uprooted from family to face rejection and embarrassment. Alone, essentially for the first time, she only had herself to rely on for survival. To move forward, she had to stop being a people pleaser.

From nurse to artist to 25-year veteran art gallery owner, in downtown Holland, Michigan, Kate has most recently moved on from the gallery, penned my memoir, and schedule public speaking engagements.

Kate's presentation was informative for a wide cross-section of listener types ... from the casual audience member wanting entertainment to eager listener who hopes you have something of substance and universal value.
