Describe the work that you do.
Through my stories and original songs I seek to move people to action on what matters to them most in their lives. The first step is owning their dream, then summoning the courage to take small actions toward it. I form groups for mentoring and peer support as there is interest from a group.
Who do you serve/who is your preferred audience?
• Women’s groups of all types
• Spiritual Groups
• Schools including students, administrators and teachers
• Health professionals
• Older men and women
• People dealing with disability or illness
How do you transform your audience?
I don’t. They do. Adding music to the message touches people and opens them to participating fully in the exercises I share, such as
• Question: Have you ever had the experience of your life humming along, and then suddenly had it go upside down?
• Visualization: Visiting their House of Dreams. Writing down the information they discover there.
• Stone Worn Smooth: What someone shared with you that gave you hope and confidence. Share with your neighbor
• Remember a time you trusted your knowing and acted on it. How did it affect you?
• What Was Your Passion when you were younger? What action could you take toward your passion now?

“Kate’s speech ‘Love’s the Only Wisdom’ was so moving that I was completely touched and inspired by her message. She has such a great voice and such an awesome story, about creating songs for kids as well as overcoming adversity on her own personal journey. Throughout her speech I found myself singing along and wanting to hear more of the songs she’s written over her life. It was an awesome speech and you yourself have to experience it.”
