Kathy is a mother of three, artist, and designer who grew up with a love of paper. Some of her earliest memories were punching out holes to make handmade holiday cards with her mom. Surrounded by a family of makers, she began programming at at as a young child, and was a self-taught graphic designer and web developer at an early age.

An artist and entrepreneur at heart, Kathy opened her first company at age 25, where she has created hundreds of brands, marketing campaigns and websites over the years.

In 2013, after navigating the very all-consuming work+life balance challenges of entrepreneurship and early motherhood, Kathy saw her passion lied in inspiring and providing a path for others to believe in and pursue their dreams alongside their ambitious roles.


The love for the custom sentiment - making a message that is in part written and in part a piece of art delivered through paper, carried with her throughout the years. She began making paper and media products that served women's desire to creatively contribute to the world, while pursuing a full, enriching life in which cherishing the moment, nurturing relationships, mindfulness and family come first.

Kathy's unique style of planners, paper goods and gifts can now be found at, on Etsy, and on Amazon.

Kathy and her family -- husband, Tim, and children ages 8, 10 & 13 -- recently moved from California to Oregon. She travels frequently with her family to destinations across the globe. She also enjoys running, yoga, and painting, and is frequently found organizing volunteer projects related to Maker and STEM education. She blogs at about work-life balance, parenting, cherishing the moment, family travel and creative pursuits.

Inspired Year Planner | Background Story

Written by Kathy
A few years ago, goal-setting helped changed the course of my life. I had never taken the time to write down and regularly refer to goals before, and while I had been very ambitious, I hadn't done a very good job focusing on how I truly wanted to feel. I was in the middle of burnout from spreading myself too thin between my business, raising young kids, volunteering, and the obligations of running a household.

So, I made it my goal for the year to simply slow down and enjoy the present moment. I started a family vacation tradition, rediscovered lost hobbies, and started making room for more fun in my life. Being more aware of what I cared about dovetailed into restructuring my career as well. Taking the time to write down my goals, reflect on why they were important, and committing to them gave me newfound energy and purpose. It took effort and determination, and I realized that no matter how much we try, without focusing on our intentions regularly, we can easily get derailed. The Inspired Year Planner came to fruition as I thought through my goal-setting process that year. I wanted to create a planner that, on a daily basis, helped women and parents feel uplifted, purposeful, and creative.

And, while doing so, also provided a foundation to create and focus on goals and balance. I wanted women to enjoy a planner that helped them towards the big obvious goals (finances, weight, etc.), but also the more subtle, heartfelt goals - around the way we want to feel, the balance we want to achieve, the purpose we long for, and the self-care we know we need. I designed the first version of the Inspired Year Planner in December 2015 - the name and details were different, but the concept was the same.

I used my own art in the designs, and pulled meaningful quotes that I had saved for years in journals and notebooks. The planner was incredibly successful in its early versions on Etsy. So, in November 2016, I took on my first ever Kickstarter campaign to officially launch the planners to a wider audience. The Kickstarter campaign was 120% funded in just three weeks, and I (and my family) worked tirelessly to have hundreds of planners out before the 2016 holiday season ended. Now in its third year, the Inspired Year Planner continues to be received with joy and enthusiasm by all who discover it, and I am excited to further share this amazing tool with creative-thinkers around the world.
