Those who know Kathy’s story will tell you that her career and position as a mindfulness expert is no coincidence. Kathy grew up in a house filled to the brim with love, peacefulness, positive thinking, happiness, and laughter with her six siblings. She smiles ear-to-ear when talking about her glowing childhood and her mother. “People always wanted to be at my house. My mother created a perfect environment for children.”, she exclaims.

With these tools, they can change the world!”
Kathy also launched Peace Place for Kids, where children and their families can come to participate in activities such as yoga, the arts, music, and so much more with the goal of finding their peace.
