I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed my interview with Katie. It was amazing! I so admire Katie for her strength, determination and will, to overcome all her challenges to become who she is today – truly inspiring. You’d love her story, so sit back and get either a cup of tea/coffee and better yet, a glass of wine!
