I have a degree in Advertising with an emphasis in MIS (Management Information Systems). I also have a lot…..and I mean a lot of years in product development and buying. I am loved and supported by my amazing husband, cheeky boys and Labrador – Archie. I am originally from the US, and moved to the UK 11 years ago. I may be American, but I can make a great cup of tea. I am a huge fan of yoga and meditation, and this greatly contributes to my style of simple and clean design.
I’ve always had a spiritual knowing ….but if you don’t heed the warnings and signs, then life has this funny way of pulling the rug out from under you, to get your attention.
My journey started when my husband and I got married and I moved to the UK (from the US), where he’s from. Two years later we welcomed my first son and a quick 20 months later, our second son.
Life got pretty busy. With no family support, I left my new job in the UK to be a stay-at-home mum.
When my second son had started pre-school, the rug was pulled hard and I landed spectacularly into a heap on the floor. Suddenly my role had changed and I wasn’t on demand with the kids as I once was….I had a bit of freedom…but with that freedom came the crash.
I didn’t know who I was.
I had lost myself somewhere in the crazy transition from being Katie Dropik with a good career and family and friends in the US to being Kate Remmer, stay-at-home mum, no family nearby, few friends, in the UK.
I hadn’t noticed, because I had been so busy and it all happened so fast.
My anxiety was at an all time high. My purpose had changed and I had changed.
I was at a cross-roads……
…go left and I go back to a 9-5 that I never loved… or, turn right….into the unknown, go with my gut and do what I love.
I went right.
I dove headfirst into yoga and meditation to ease my anxiety and read nearly every spiritual book on the planet. I didn’t want who I was to be tied to what job I did or what side of the ocean I lived on…..so I started asking myself, “Who am I?”, “What do I want?”, and “What is my purpose?”
I started my business as a photographer, because it was my passion. That evolved into creating brands and websites after I designed my own and realised it was something I’d love to help others do (and FINALLY falling back on what I went to university for).
Now I have the pleasure of working with and supporting other passionate entrepreneurs who have found their true path and who are ready to take their businesses to the next level.
I’ve never looked back.
I now know that who I am is completely location and job independent.
Who I am is already in me, it’s been there all along.
