"Dr. Kate provided an excellent training. I loved the humor! I will use a lot of what I learned and I loved that I learned that 'NO!' is a complete sentence."
Participant, Day-Long Intensive Training
Dr. Kate believes dealing with difficult people and those different from one's self is an inside out process.
Using personal stories, passion, and wit, Dr. Kate creates safe and challenging learning environments where individuals can break free of limiting beliefs that hold them back.
Dr. Kate combines over 20 years of academic expertise as a University Sociology professor with her experiential experiences as a 3rd degree black belt and certified self-defense instructor to provide concrete strategies that create proven results.
“Dr Kate had great energy and did an excellent job engaging everyone in our large room including those in remote locations—which can be difficult to do. We would love to have her back again in the future.”
Dr. Kate is a leader in shifting unconscious biases
“Dr. Kate’s presentation helped me to work on my affirmations and quiet my negative self-talk. It made me realize how much I need to quiet the outside noise so that I can listen to myself. I now can see how valuable the tools from her presentation are and how I can use them to move forward in my life.”

“After watching Dr. Kate’s TED talk, I wanted to say thank you. Throughout my whole college experience I have felt like I wasn't good enough and didn't belong here. Your talk gave me a massive amount of courage and inspiration. Like you said, it's going to be hard, but now I have the courage to have some confidence in myself and start believing in myself, so thank you.”
