My name is Kat and I’m loud, outspoken, energetic, funny, outgoing, and inspiring. That’s what everyone sees but what you don’t see is just how brave I am. I suffer from anxiety and depression (and have since I was a small child). I know I’m brave because everyday I get up and put one foot in front of the other no matter how bad I feel  and smile. I do my job, I train clients and work very hard regardless of what I may be dealing with inside my head. What you don’t see is the times it’s hard to get out of bed or understand why I don’t want to be around friends because it can feel too overwhelming. 

I often escape to the mountains to get away from it all and let nature heal me. Hiking has become a new therapy for me. My story doesn’t make me special or unique. So many people suffer from mental health issues and the more we speak out to one another the more we can help each other. Please donate to my fundraising page if you are able to help the many who suffer with mental health illnesses.
