She has taught in universities, private industry, church groups, educational systems, nonprofit organizations, state/county/city government agencies, and correctional facilities. Since 1989, she has included Juggling Master – a program she wrote that promotes self-mastery.
Since she taught high school, Kathy realized that only a small portion of the population learns by sitting and listening. So, she developed Juggling Master, which would allow people to move to learn. Self-mastery is inner control – the epitome of skills that is attributed to happiness, success, leadership, strong relationships, and countless other qualities. Juggling Master is related to conflict in that one has to control one’s self before there is movement towards resolution.
