Tell a story that sells.

Harness the power of storytelling to make the right things

happen in your career, business, and professional life.




from me to you

I spent the entirety of my 20's and early 30's having no idea what the hell I was doing with my life. 

I was jumping from job to job and trying desperately to find meaning and connection in my experiences. I was convinced that if I could just land the perfect job or start the perfect business, it would all become clear. 

I was waiting for some magical clarity fairy to swoop down and *POOF* - make sense of my professional life.

Spoiler alert: That didn't happen. 

What DID happen, however, was a wakeup call in the form of a stomach ulcer. I was at a job I hated, terrified to leave the security of it, and stressing myself sick. 

While sitting in the waiting room at Urgent Care, a tiny and profound thought popped into my head:

What am I working for? 

Most of us spend the majority of our lives at work. Oftentimes we see our co-workers more than our family members, friends, and pets combined! Shouldn't we feel connected to what we do? Shouldn't we use the unique gifts we were given to move the world forward? 

I decided my answer to that pivotal question was, "Yes. I'm going to help people harness the power of storytelling to find deep connection to their work and attract the right customers, employers, and opportunities."

Whether you are just starting out in your professional life or have been in the workforce for decades, you deserve to wake up each morning with a sense of purpose and clarity. 

I'm here to help you find it. 

Can't wait to get started,

I signed up for the Storytelling Ninja workshop hoping to learn some basic information about storytelling. I left with vastly more. After a year of feeling stuck, in under 2 hours with Kat, I was able to rediscover my “why”, brainstorm names for my organization and determine the purpose of my online presence. I definitely left with tools to tell my damn story with a lot more confidence.
