I’m Katheryn Barton. Some of my favorite things in this world include, keeping busy. I am always on the lookout for the next thing I can learn and jump into. I am a sucker for workshops and reading or listening to (audiobook) the next book for my book club. I love traveling, trying new foods and seeing what level of spicy I can make my Thai food without hating myself 😉 Live music and living-room dance parties with my daughter keep me young and my mom-moves up-to-par. My favorite things include laughing with my mom, even if it is mostly to America’s Funniest Home Videos. In the fall, exploring any vast pumpkin patch for the perfect jack-o-lantern. Listening to the chorus of a family singing happy birthday to the lucky person that month. The little bit of icing on the bottom of the candle that feels like a special, sneaky-treat. And of course, a thick Ted Drewes concrete on a hot summer day, trying to finish it before it turns into ice-cream soup.
My background consists of altogether a few years living and traveling abroad where I learned how to order a beer and say cheers in many languages. I went to school over many years and earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas. THEN I went back for my associate degree to become a sign language interpreter. Since that wasn’t enough for me, I went back to school again while working full-time with Special School District to earn my master’s degree. All of this has brought me here, where I am finally ready and excited to help my clients learn healthy communication tools and strategies.
