"It's rare to listen to a professional speaker that comes across as relatable as they do knowledgeable.
Katrina dived deep into how to better understand individual identities and boundaries in order to create a more inclusive workplace. I was particularly impressed by Katrina's ability to navigate important and potentially "sensitive" topics candidly, and with sincerity, and nuance. Although this ability is rare, Katrina has developed it masterfully. I would highly recommend Katrina for any public speaking event where audience engagement and trust is needed!"

"Working with Katrina was beyond
They bring a refreshing perspective to the mental health conversation, telling their story in a way that is accessible to an audience while remaining authentic.
Katrina uses their lived experience to challenge the accepted narrative surrounding mental health.
I appreciate the conversation we were able to have and learned so much from them."

"I came to Katrina unsure of my value. I knew what direction I wanted to go in terms of my career however, I did not have the words nor confidence to articulate my desires. Katrina combined their efficient skills as a coach and their unconditionally kind heart to help me highlight my accolades in a way that will soon have recruiters fighting over me! I will continue to praise Katrina's services to anyone who will listen!
Thank you again, Katrina!"
