I believe in magic and the power of transformation.

I know it’s real because I’ve experienced it.

I feel it in every cell in my being when people just like you show up for my programs. It’s why I do this work. I get to see people leave fear and self-doubt in the dust and take a deliberate first step into who they were born to be.

It’s powerful.

My own journey of personal transformation began in my early twenties, though no doubt it started long before that—I just wasn’t paying attention.

At 21, I was angry, confused, disconnected, overwhelmed, lost, and I felt broken and alone. I was competing in the first event on the World Snowboard Tour and had a brutal and horrific snowboarding accident where I came up short on a 60-foot gap jump and smacked into the upside of the wall of the landing ramp. It wasn’t pretty—My entire left knee blew apart, I snapped ligaments, chipped bones, and sustained a massive concussion. I was devastated because I had only been back on the snow for 2 weeks and had just finished 6 months of rehab on my other knee. Although this was “technically” the same injury, I had just rehabbed (an ACL reconstruction), but this injury was different—it was bigger than me. I was emotionally devastated, I was energetically drained and my body didn’t respond to rehab the way it did the first time.

After 18 months, I still had swelling and pain, and I couldn’t fully bear weight. What worked so well the first time around, was not working at all this time. Desperate for a solution and change, I got curious about other modalities beyond the western approach and began reading about eastern philosophies and experimenting with breathing techniques, visualization, meditation, and all sorts of things. My curiosity gave me more than I was looking for—I opened pandora’s box. I was shocked when I began making huge progress in my physical recovery and also realized I had a lifetime of wounding to heal on an emotional and energetic level in my relationship to myself, my family, and my early life experiences. It became crystal clear to me that these wounds were holding me back from my dreams and truly stepping into who I was at my core. I also saw how closely related personal growth work was with my ability to manifest and achieve in the business world.

Down the rabbit hole I went and almost 20 years later I can say with complete confidence, it is all interwoven and it all starts with the individual. What I have been able to manifest in my life— genuine happiness, a loving relationship, a perfectly healthy daughter, a beautiful home, a fulfilling career is the result of a lot of inner work. I won’t say this is an easy path—it’s not. No one can do the work for you, but having a guide, a mentor and a support structure is invaluable.

If you desire tectonic shifts to happen in your life, seek someone who has made tectonic shifts in their own life and follow their lead. I always say you can only guide someone as far as you have gone yourself. As you get to know me, you’ll learn how I completely turned my life around and how I guide and support others in creating a positive shift in theirs.

When the student is ready the teacher appears.
As has always been the case, the stars align and the right people find me at just the right time— There are no mistakes or coincidences. If you are one of them, I’d be honored to guide and support you and set in motion a stunning transformation.

Hello. I’m Katie.

That accent? It’s from my native Australian roots.

I’m a former Professional Snowboarder turned Executive turned Personal Transformation expert. Throughout my career evolution, one thing has always stayed the same—I have always been fascinated by human potential and have had an insatiable curiosity for knowledge, mysticism and spirituality. During my snowboarding career, each time I got injured, (which was a lot), I took the opportunity to quench my thirst for learning and continue to follow the same stride, always expanding my scope. I hold 10,000+ hours in certifications and have honed my skills through 30,000+ hours as a practitioner. When I am working with clients one-on-one or leading group experiences I pull from the range of modalities I have studied to create a custom experience specific to the individual or group needs, these include Meditation, Somatic Experiencing, Trauma Healing, Kinesiology & Functional Movement, Life Coaching, Leadership, Business Mastery, Shaolin long Fist Kung-Fu, Qi Gong, Classical Pilates, Massage Therapy, Biodynamic Cranio-sacral Therapy, Thai massage, Reiki, Chi-Nei Tsang, Su-jok, Personal Training,  Reflexology,  and Yoga… lots and lots of Yoga.

Forever curious, I’ve traveled the world many times over, worked with big name NBA, NFL, NHL, and Olympic athletes, owned a yoga studio, created and designed 5-Star, 200/500-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification Programs accredited by Yoga Alliance and licensed them to others, launched two successful online programs (Flourish Empowered Living Program and The Yoga Professional – Inner Circle Mastermind), and served on the Executive Team for five years of one of the fastest growing boutique yoga companies in the U.S.

I have the love and support of my beautiful daughter and my warrior husband, who serves in the U.S. Special Forces.

I’m an entrepreneur at heart, a lover of life, adventure, a good laugh, and straight up conversation.

I create and facilitate transformative experiences for others that result in GROWTH—fueled by my expertise and passion for people and the human spirit.

Being human is HARD, there will always be good days and bad days. What I teach, empowers others and equips them with the tools and develops the skills they need to be able to ride the highs and lows like a snowboarder skillfully carving down a mountain. To see others rise up and claim who they really are, who they were born to be, is what truly lights me up—I feel fulfilled on every level, and reminded that I am in fact, living my purpose.

I feel incredibly blessed to be sharing my gifts. I’d love to share them with you.
