In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Kathy Robinson.

Prior to becoming a certified wellness coach and author of The Athena Principles – Simple Wellness Practices for Overworked Professionals, Kathy Robinson spent more than 25 years assessing the wellness of Fortune 250 companies.

She was a Chief Audit Executive and Chief Risk Officer before turning the lens from professional assessments to personal ones and began helping her clients optimize their well-being, especially in times of transition or when striving toward new wellness goals.

She also teaches and facilitates online offerings based on her wellness methodology that include practices such as writing and meditation.

Kathy takes a holistic approach to optimal well-being that addresses mind, body and spirit.  One of her “superpowers” is the ability to make these topics relatable and meaningful for Type-A executives and entrepreneurs, especially those who have maxed out or become burnt out and disconnected.

Clients trust Kathy’s ability to hold the space they need to listen to their inner wisdom.  With her expert guidance, they drop deep into exploring their own value, impact and influence – and move forward into a life that is a full expression of themselves.

In addition to one-on-one coaching, writing and speaking, Kathy teaches and facilitates online courses based on her wellness methodology and focused on personal transformation.  Her latest offering is “From Type A to Type Be, How to Mindfully Descend the Corporate Ladder and Invite What’s Next.”

Kathy practices what she preaches and is passionate about a holistic approach to wellness. She believes that a positive attitude is the accelerator that propels us through transformation. You can find her running the trails in northern New Jersey, where she completed her first marathon and ultramarathon at age 54.
