Katie is a copywriter, editor, poet, and lived experience speaker. Katie has had bipolar episodes for most of her adult life, but wasn’t diagnosed until she was a few months postpartum and experiencing insomnia and mania. One thing that got her through this time was the mantra: “something beautiful will come from this.”
Katie now writes about her experiences of hospitalisation, diagnosis and identity, recovery, work, motherhood and more through her website Compassion Poetry and speaks as a guest on panels, podcasts and more. She’s on a mission to raise awareness and reduce stigma.
She also facilitates presentations for corporates, find out more here: https://compassionpoetry.co.
