Hi, and welcome!

My name is Katherine. 

I’m a professional musician of 9 years. After becoming disabled, and I found a way to create a thriving career I love after illness & injury for myself and others.

A few years after landing my dream job as a musician in the U.S. Army Bands, I got sick.
I don’t mean the kind of sick you recover from if you take medicine & rest a few days.
I had developed 2 chronic auto-immune diseases.This was permanent. 

Fast forward three more years and multiple diagnoses later, every part of my life had changed – including as a musician. I was medically retired from the U.S. Army. To be honest, it was devastating. I’d known it was coming, but nothing can truly prepare you for a new reality like this.

 I had a choice to make. What next?
Musician illness and injury advocacy wasn’t my mission in life until it WAS my life. I became an expert in living with injury/illness as a working musician. I navigated the medical care system (successfully), learned to advocate for myself & others, and created a career I LOVE despite my limitations.
And now, I’m here to teach you how to do it too.

Today, I make thriving possible for musicians whose lives have been affected due to injury and/or illness – whether mental or physical. I help musicians re-imagine their careers & guide practitioners to create lasting wellness & success!

If you’re unhappy with how injury/illness have affected your career & life, or you want to enjoy the benefits of complete wellness, I’m here to help you!  

How can I help you?

I’m looking for career guidance &/or to improve wellness & success
