Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Katrina knew her God-given purpose was to help people at an early age. Katrina received her Bachelor's in Social Work and Master's in Social Work from the University of Oklahoma. She is extremely dedicated to serving others, believing that everyone has the opportunity to change when introduced to the proper tools and access to a healthy support system. Growing up, Katrina experienced her own personal trauma and emotional struggles with low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression. With the help of Katrina's Godly faith and spiritual path, personal writing, and tapping into her support system, she learned how valuable her life is and was able to take back control. Writing has always been a positive outlet for her since grade school. As she grew older, she began to journal and was given the vision to share the words from those pages through her platform, realizing that others could not only identify with her but could use her words to heal.
Katrina is one of the co-founder's of Becoming The Full Package, a workshop series centered on helping girls and young women focus on their mental health, wellness, self-image, and beauty. This series was launched in August 2017 and continues to be facilitated within her community with hopes of reaching many young women globally.

When she's not in the office, she loves traveling, writing, and spending quality time with family and friends. Her personal motto is, "Before you can help and inspire others, you must be willing to be transparent about your own story."
