Welcome to this inspiration blog. I am an artist, educator and motivational coach, with firm faith, who when necessary adds a bit of tough love. I believe in seeing the glass half full, not half empty and that we have to take ownership of the choices made, not beat ourselves up eternally and forever, but take ownership so we can make different choices going forward. I hope this blog inspires you on some level.
I also hope to be working with other in the field of coaching and healing such as Stephanie Lin http://www.stephanieylin.com When we can collaborate with others with good intentions, the ripple in the pond is even greater.
Born in New Jersey, August 1965, this Italian-American has always had a great interest in music, particularly the Oldies, Country and Ethnic music, including Irish. For over 10 years Ms. Appello passionately taught ESL to students of varying ages. She also participated in amateur nights and such, being a poet and songwriter since college.
Grounded in her faith and spirituality, Katherine endured a range of issues, including a great deal of pain, which was finally diagnosed to be associated with Fibromyalgia. The essence and the power of music, of words, allow Katherine to overcome these struggles each and every time.
I could have given up, crawled up and retired from the world, life, but instead I decided to move towards the one constant in my life, the arts and sharing what was in my heart, so here we are.
You can catch me interviewed on blogs and podcasts, here are the links:
