Katie is a Wisconsin girl at heart who strives to paint with her words, illustrating a soulful connection with nature and adaptive outdoor adventure. She was diagnosed with SMA shortly after crawling (but never walking) into toddlerhood. With a background in Human Development & Family Studies, she finds fulfillment in being an uplifting resource for others and encourages those with mobility challenges to chart their course, navigate the waters and embrace their distinctive beauty. When she's not engaging in advocacy or writing, you'll likely find her hiking an accessible trail, adoring a sunset, or eating a s'more somewhere. She has three companions who hold her heart - two of which travel by paws (the other has human feet). Follow her journey @wheelprintsalongthewildflowers on Instagram.
