Professional statement

Hi, I’m Katrina! I am a health and wellness coach, life coach, speaker and author.

I have credentials in communications and public administration and also hold a certificate of health coaching. I’m equipped with 10+ years of experience working with adults and youth, as they discover meaning in life, what wellness means to them and much more. I’ve had the pleasure of working with groups and individuals from various backgrounds in my career, in my local community, through my involvement with nonprofit organizations, and the faith-based community.

During my own wellness journey, I discovered that each role I fulfilled in life prepared me to walk with others on their journeys as a coach. From self-publishing a relationship and spirituality book, advising and mentoring youth and young adults, to being everyone’s former favorite substitute teacher, it has been and will always be my aim to share the message that wellness is all around us and attainable.
