If WE don’t create the world we want to live in,
then who will?
Legacy isn’t about the past. It’s about the present.
Think of those who left a legacy footprint in your life.
Was it a teacher, coach, or family member? What was it about them that was so influential?
I bet they left a legacy in your life while they were still alive. We often think that legacy is left after we die, but the truth is we are leaving a legacy every day in how we interact with others and authentically show up in life.
Part of Katie’s focus in her work is building a legacy now. Her mother and father raised her with the mindset of always giving back. After her mother died suddenly in 2018, Katie realized it was time to pay attention to what legacy she is leaving now. We’re not guaranteed tomorrow after all.
Here are some organizations Katie is supporting:
Sticky Fingers was established in 2017 by two loving parents who lost their daughter to a rare terminal disease. They are dedicated to improving the quality of life for families who also have a child with a rare, life-limiting disease. Their sole purpose is to provide families access to resources, tools and community through workshops, personal networks and special events to help alleviate isolation and encourage well-being.
The Parent – Child Center, Elki for short, is a meeting place for children from age 0 to kindergarten and beyond with their parents, grandparents, or daycare providers. It is a non-profit association where young families are welcome. What distinguishes Elki from other parent-child centers is its international offer: different language (7) playgroups and workshops to support the multicultural community in Munich, Germany.
Katie has been a leader in her local girl scouts for over three years. She believes that helping young girls develop stronger self-esteem, emotional intelligence, and life skills sets them on a path to success wherever they go. The Girl Scouts of Munich work together to make their city a better place.
In 2019, Katie co-founded Women Entrepreneurs of Munich, a non-profit organization to support the English speaking community of women entrepreneurs in the city and surrounding area. The organization provides networking events, workshops, and socials to build a stronger connection for their members. As of July 2022, she no longer serves on the leadership team but continues to support their efforts and run a small meetup within the organizaton called The Spiritual Entrepreneurs.
