Welcome from Kathy

Welcome - this is a place that supports you in all the places you lead - at work, at home and in your communities.

For 20+ years, I have collaborated with leaders at all levels in corporate and nonprofit settings. I'm a communication doctor, social scientist, and organizational and personal development expert. I'm also a mom, a volunteer leader and a traveller on life's off-road (i.e., like most of us, I've had a few twists and turns on life's path).


The common thread my clients identify is their need for refreshment. We pour our energy into the world and sometimes forget to refresh - ourselves, our strategies, our goals, our meetings, our teams, our organizations, our personal connections and more.

Since rebranding with Refreshment Zone several years ago, I've become fascinated with "re-verbs." I use these in planning sessions with corporations, nonprofits, teams and coaching sessions. This handout sits beside my desk - I use it almost every day to power up my own personal planning. Today it's a gift for you. I hope you find other gifts while you visit - strategies, ideas, encouragement, inspiration and hope.


Here you'll find refreshment resources and information about consulting servicesI serve a full client list, write/create here and on our social media sites, and offer several personal development seminars each year.


I'm glad you're here - let's collaborate.
