She is one of my favorite girls in this whole world. I have known her for almost 9 years now and we have had so many fun adventures together. She is the most talented hair and makeup artist I know and she has a HUGE heart. Seriously one of the kindest, most driven, generous, hard working women ever.
She loves her family deeply, is always up for an adventure, and will make you look and more importantly FEEL like you are the most beautiful girl in the world.
Thank you Kathy for your friendship, your talent, and for sharing your story.
- Why do you want to be a part of this project?
Heart issues don’t have a specific age or gender. Helping shine awareness can hopefully help someone who maybe needs to get checked or knows someone that needs that extra support to encourage them to get checked.
- How have you been affected by Heart Health?
My mother has CHF, congestive heart failure, from a childhood illness. My middle son, develop a heart murmur that he has grown out of and I have a mitral valve prolapse. Which I was diagnosed with in my early 20’s.
- What do you want people to know?
Heart issues knows no boundaries. Somethings maybe obvious and some can be silent. CPR is important to know. In case of a heart attack- it can save someone’s life.
- How has this all changed your life?
I wouldn’t say it’s changed my life but I would say it’s brought awareness to how life is an amazing gift and so very precious. While tomorrow is not promised and our amazing medical advancements are truly amazing and life saving… I don’t want to have a life to full of could’ve, should’ve or would’ve. If you are suspecting an issue, you owe it to yourself to check it out. Not only does it give you peace of mind, it does to your loved ones also.
- What’s the most important thing in the world to you?
- If this was your last week on earth, how would you live it?
I don’t want to ever think of that but, I’d want to be with my entire family, my kids, brothers and sisters and mom and dad in the mountains over looking the world. Just us and maybe a little skydiving, gold panning and just fun adventures.
- What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about family and finding beauty and adventures in life. I’m not a thrill seeker per say but I want a full life of seeing beautiful things, hearing wonderful sounds, wondering how something is made (laying under our stars, seeing the unknown), touching Gods amazing world and giving my children the love and zest for that curiosity.
- What do you love about yourself?
I love the dreamer in me, and I love my “out of the box” thinking.
- What is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?
My friends and family are amazing- they have all done amazing nice things for me. I thank all of them.
Thank you so much, Kathy for sharing your story.
You are amazing and such a wonderful human.
