Zoe Weiner, Well Wanderer

In a one hour meeting with Kate, I went from feeling like I had NO idea how to start my business to having a fully laid out plan, and more importantly, full confidence in myself that I could do it. 

Christina Thelin, Ina + Ilia

I love the homework assignments – it really does keep me on track and talking through the concerns and how to break them down into bite-size pieces is fantastic.

Kara Mosesso, Nomadic Nourishment 

Kate seamlessly helped me clarify my business goals, but most importantly she helped me dig deeper to understand how my goals would will help me uncover the freedom & lifestyle I desire. 


About Kate
