Kathy’s Bio

I have a Bachelors from UC Berkeley and a Masters from San Francisco State. I'm a professional chef, health coach, personal trainer, and ordained clergy. I have a health coaching business in the cochlea valley called THRIVE health coaching and am certified in nutritional and integrative medicine for mental health. I am also a certified trauma professional and meditation instructor. I have worked as a private chef and occasional companion since 1994. Prior to that I worked as a chef in the restaurant industry. Most recently I worked as a private chef/part time companion for an elderly couple in La Quinta who needed care after the husband suffered a massive heart attack. I am physically fit, articulate and empathetic. I adore older people and always feel like I get the better end of the transaction: they give me their wisdom for merely showing up and paying attention!
