A mother of three girls, Katie, led her family through a difficult six-year journey when her eldest daughter, Elizabeth was diagnosed with cancer. Inspired by her daughter’s quiet, gentle way of dealing with her cancer, she became passionate about helping children with cancer. When Elizabeth became her angel on March 10, 2013, an unexpected opportunity opened up giving her a way to honor her angel. Katie began her journey, to becoming a Seimei practitioner. Her dedication to youth is evident in other ways as she volunteers with Junior Achievement USA, teaching financial literacy, job readiness and, entrepreneurship skills.
