Katie has travelled extensively worldwide, spending many years in India, even spending the first year of her degree immersed in South Asian culture. She is humbled by the many people she’s met along her journey, who have taught her patience, acceptance and gratitude. She has also been fortunate enough to meet spiritual teachers, many of whom inspired her to practise meditation. All of these experiences allow her to take a calm, mindful approach to my career and allow her to achieve a healthy work-life balance. She has also recently taken up running through the NHS Couch to 5k programme, finding it helps her to unwind and, after the physical strains of working as a care assistant, it also rejuvenates her on her days off.
