About Katarina

Katarina is a health blogger, health writer and all-around health nerd. Six years ago she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and endometriosis. On her health journey, she has learned the power of self-care skills to improve her health and well-being. As a writer, she is excited to educate and inspire others to be skillfully well, even if they have a chronic condition!

Before her diagnosis of fibromyalgia and endometriosis, she was a graduate student planning a career in public health and international development. She loves to travel and spends a lot of time working, studying and volunteering abroad. She was hoping to have a career that would take her around the world. Over the course of two years, these dreams were cut short because of her chronic condition. Gradually, she started learning self-care skills that improved my health and wellbeing. She learned that living skillfully improved her wellness in all dimensions (mind, body and spirit). It also increased her agency in my life again – her capacity to achieve change. She had to change the narrative of her life from the career-focused humanitarian to a self-care advocate in her own life and the lives of others.

Katarina lives with her husband and our 2-year-old cat Sarah. She loves learning, nutrition, reading, being outside, Netflix, cooking and coffee!
