Kathryn Burmeister does it all! She is an attorney, coach, speaker, and author. But it’s her experiences, struggles, and how she’s been able to overcome those struggles that really stands out.

Throughout this episode, Kathryn shares some incredible and vulnerable experiences with us, and how she has been able to climb out of what she calls her rock bottom.

Any conversation regarding mental health tends to bring about feelings of uncomfortability, but Kathryn crushes right through that to help us all understand just how important taking care of ourselves, mentally, really is.
