Check out the full episode here:
Katherine Epstein has had many hurdles in her life due to having cerebral palsy,
but she has pushed through to accomplish her dreams!
Katherine is a friend of mine, that I met a few years ago at a party in New
Hampshire. I didn’t realize at the time that she was living such a great life
even with cerebral palsy. It is truly amazing that she found the courage to
recognize her unhappiness with being a special education teacher. Katherine up
and quit and sorted out her options after the fact. Such a shoot first and ask
questions later approach is risky, but she took it head on and I can’t applaud
her enough for it!
Finding her calling a few months later working for an advocacy group for people
living with disabilities has been really impactful to Katherine. Getting to live
a normal life with cerebral palsy makes her very fortunate, and using her
difference to make a difference (to borrow a term from by good friend Tayo
Rockson) makes her truly amazing! I am very happy to get to share her story with
P.S. I hope you all had an awesome and safe New Year’s Eve!
