How I earn a living: For over 30 years I managed other peoples businesses and I worked in internal medicine and gastroenterology. Now I earn a living by sharing my creativity. I have a blog art/design website Blog Art By Katherine (let me help you create the blog you envision) and two online shops Keepsakes By Katherine and Be Well Gifts .
One of the nicest compliments I have ever received was during a annual work evaluation. I was told that I treat each person like they are the most important person in the world. I was honored by these words and they are forever embedded on my heart.
