Join Kathleen as she talks about her journey, how she sold everything she owned to bike across the country, and began living a life of intention - a life on purpose. She talks about how at the core, all people desire freedom, and in order to start actively participating in the creation of our lives, it starts with bite-sized actions - small steps. She will talk about how to breathe freedom into your life and stop settling for less, how to stop letting life happen to you, and instead, be the active creator of your life and circumstances.

Making a move in 2012 that would terrify even the bravest of nonconformists, Kathleen quit her high-pressure sales job in the city, sold everything and set out to ride her bike across the United States. After 2 years of perpetual travel, she found her calling as a life and business coach helping other women who want an intentional life they love bring their visions to fruition. She lives in Sedona, Arizona with her husband and pets.
