Kat spends her days working as an IT professional in St. Louis, MO. By night she can be found knitting, gardening, or reading. In 2009 while away at University Kat was diagnosed with asthma in addition to lifelong allergies. During this time she began blogging about her experiences with Asthma and Allergies. As she engaged the healthcare system Kat found her way off the couch and into an active lifestyle. She has completed walk/runs, a triathalon, lifeguard training, and most recently has bitten by the utility bicycling bug.
