Katie has been an Earth and animal advocate her entire adult life. Even as a child, Katie loved her backyard swing set in the woods, always feeling connected with nature!

Katie is also a Maitri Breathwork™ Facilitator, a Reiki practitioner, a social commentary poet, and an attorney. She specialized in Fair & Responsible Banking and risk management as a financial compliance consultant for 22 years.

She envisions an evolution on our planet in which humanity and the many ecosystems and species thrive in harmony with one another.

Katie lives in Greenville, SC, with many visits back home to Cleveland, OH to visit her Mama and friends. She lives with her partner Bill Boronkay, a comedian and former sportscaster who has 5 Emmys he is too humble to joke about, and with their 3 cats, Squeaky, Lester and Stevie Nicks. Their homes also include many beloved foster and stray cats they socialize and find loving homes for (over 100 and counting!). If you're interested in a sweet cat, please reach out!

Katie grew up Catholic and always felt a deep spiritual affinity with Jesus, God and the Saints. She began studying Eastern religions and spiritual philosophies in 1989 via an Eastern World Religion class in college, attending a Vedanta Society's sessions and having a golden opportunity to interview the Swami. This class opened her to spirituality in different forms. Her spiritual path included studying multiple religions and philosophies, including A Course in Miracles, the Seth books, and Tai Chi. She became a Reiki Practitioner (Level III) in 1994. She joined a Unity Church in the early 2000s, which offered amazing spiritual teachers and experiences, such as chanting, drum circles, and MasterMinds. In 2006, she co-founded Sacred Arts and Healing Center, LLC (SAHCs) in 2006 with Roger Sams in Lakewood, Ohio. The primary modality at SAHCs was Transformational Movement, and SAHCs was an instrumental facility for personal growth, Reiki, massage and healing in the Cleveland area during its two years of operation. Katie became a Minister for Walking Prayer (TM) in 2009 (via the Center for Sacred Studies (CSS)) and during the era through 2011 Katie studied with and served (3 weeks at Omega Institute) The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. Katie is currently a parishioner of Agape International Spiritual Center, and a student of Sri Amma Karunayami, CSS, and the Mother Earth Delegation.
