“Kathryn brought a professional and intriguing message to the Del Mar College graduates. Her experiences kept the graduating class of 2014 on the edges of their seats, and the pride she demonstrated in our community was icing on the cake!”

Mark Escamilla

President, Del Mar Community College

“Kathryn was the most engaging speaker ever! The ladies of the Fort Worth Lecture Foundation were enthralled as she related the experiences that shaped who she has become. Sophisticated, yet down-to-earth, she had us begging for more. Scared? Kathryn isn’t scared of anything after the life she has lived!”

Barbara Riley

“Through entertaining and inspiring examples, Kathryn shared with us how we could significantly impact the fight against cancer … even if we didn’t have cancer. Most importantly, she helped us raise nearly $60,000 for medical equipment and oncology services – the highest total ever in our event’s history!”
