My Story…

Katherine and her husband Hans own Shepherd’s Knoll Farm, and live here with the youngest two of their six children.

They have many animals including: horses, a mini dwarf horse, miniature donkeys, dozens of sheep, mini goats, and many chickens and ducks as well. Driving up the winding driveway onto the property, you may find yourself driving through the flock of their beautiful, diversely colored, free-roaming sheep!

Katherine is more than just an animal caretaker, she is also an accomplished life coach and author. With a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s in Counseling, she has worked all over the country and even in Hong Kong. From hospitals to universities to private practices, she has honed her skills as a life coach.

But now, she focuses on providing personalized life coaching services to a select group of clients while also managing events on the property and taking care of her family and beloved animals. In her free time, she can often be found spinning wool into beautiful gifts for her loved ones. With such a full and fulfilling life, Katherine embodies true contentment and purpose.


What kinds of new adventures are you taking on in life right now? I welcome the chance to walk with you on your journey of change and transitions through life coaching (I can say it is certainly my specialty!).

"Without suffering, we do not have the opportunity to cultivate compassion and understanding; and without understanding, there can be no true love."

Excerpt from, “You Are Here” By Author: Thich Nhat Hanh

When we allow fear to take over, it is like dirtying the glass, making it harder for our light to be seen on the outside.
