Meet Katherine Hood,
A Happiness Coach!
I love fashion, bodybuilding, modeling, and anything outdoors (I lived in Alaska for 30 years), and I have loads of hobbies (ever-changing).
I can talk about mindset, health, fitness (I am a personal trainer, too), relationships, success (retired at age 35), being an empty nester, and being a woman in a male-dominated industry for 22 years (how to survive).
A happiness coach is your thinking partner. We can define what happiness means to you and work together to achieve it—asking profound questions in a safe, judgment-free zone that will lead to analyzing your patterns, cycles, thoughts, beliefs, stories, and behaviors limiting you or keeping you stuck.
Why do we need a thinking partner? Because we, as human beings, are oblivious to our way of thinking and behavior. We consider our view as the truth and not as one perspective.
Katherine has been on a long, bumpy health and wellness journey, earning her the mental toughness award if such a thing existed.
For many years as an insurance agent, Katherine was under tremendous pressure and stress. This, combined with a sedentary lifestyle, took a toll on her health and body. She desired a long, balanced, and fulfilling life; In order to achieve that, she knew she needed to change.
Predisposed to genetic markers for diabetes, she was insulin-dependent before gaining control of her health and blood sugar levels. The long hours turned to years stressed out, and sitting at a computer caused tremendous deterioration of her core and back, resulting in two back surgeries.

As Katherine proved it could be done, she inspired others to improve their health alongside her.

Ultimately, she’s learned that happiness means focusing on what matters most at the end of the day, creating space to have fun, laugh, share experiences and memories with the people in her life, and prioritizing her health, family, career, and career, generating the perfect balance.
It All Begins with Your Mindset
