🌟  Hello, I'm Katie – a devoted mom, wife to Will, and a passionate advocate for the beauty of art and creativity. My journey as a cleft parent and trauma coach has been a profound one, marked by a deep understanding of the unique challenges that we face on this path. I've walked in your shoes, and I'm here to share my story and offer a hand of support.

My journey began when our beautiful Ella was born with a unilateral cleft lip and palate. As she grew, our family's journey evolved, teaching us resilience, courage, and the boundless strength within us. I've embraced my role as a trauma practitioner, weaving together my lived experiences and trauma qualifications to guide families and young people through their own unique journeys.

We all experience this cleft parenting journey differently, yet we share a common bond – the journey itself. Over the years, as Ella has grown and I've honed my skills as a trauma practitioner, I've come to understand the complexities of this journey on a deeper level.

Life has a way of revealing its nuances when you've walked the path. I've felt the immense pride of milestones achieved and the overwhelming fear that can accompany this journey. I've experienced a whirlwind of emotions all at once, and I know what it's like to yearn for a community of women who understand and share this path.

Creating a community like this has been a dream of mine for years. I've often wondered how different things might have been if the "me" today could have reached out to the "me" in the hospital on the day we received Ella's cleft diagnosis. It would have eased the pain, alleviated the fear, and transformed the journey.

In addition to my personal journey, I'm deeply committed to the "100 Cleft Portrait Project." Beyond that, I'm an Integrated Trauma-Informed Coach and a certified Brainspotting practitioner, driven by a heart that loves teaching and guiding. My wish is to continue expanding my knowledge and research in the areas of cleft and trauma. I firmly believe that comprehensive understanding and support from the very beginning of this journey are lacking in many parts of the world. For my family, this phase of the journey has been the most challenging.

I know we are not alone in our struggles and dreams. That's why I'm here, sharing my learning, studies, and ongoing growth. My hope is that my words and experiences can reach out to another mom who may be feeling emotions she can't always express. I want to be the voice that resonates with you, no matter the reason or the circumstance.

So, here I am, excited to embark on this journey with all of you, to get to know each of you a little bit better. Thank you for being here, for sharing this space with me. If there's anything specific you'd like me to discuss or shed light on, please don't hesitate to reach out. We can do this together, as a community, supporting one another. While I'm not a medical professional, I firmly believe that sharing and talking are powerful tools.
