Professional certified life coach, motivational speaker and author Patti Katter specializes in helping individuals and families who have suffered grief, challenges and personal setbacks as a result of military war injuries.
With her mandate of “overcoming trials with triumphs."
She brings to her role personal experience as a military wife whose husband was injured in combat. Ken served in both the U.S. Marines and Army and while in Iraq, his unit was hit hard, experiencing multiple fatalities and casualties.
Patti began volunteering her time to assist military families while her husband was deployed in 2006-2007. When her husband returned home from war, the family began an arduous journey through the military healthcare system as Ken sought treatment for the wounds he suffered in Iraq. In 2010, he medically retired from the US Army. Patti notes, “My life experiences.....
“My life experiences should not be wasted by keeping them to myself. I address such topics as military veteran caregiving, the dangers and warning signs of military suicide, traumatic brain injury, PTSD and other challenges that military veterans and their families face.”
In addition, she is a contributing author of three books from Moody Publishing: “Stories of Faith and Courage from the Homefront,” “Military Wives New Testament” and “Faith Deployed... Again!” She has also volunteered with Christian Military Wives, Voice of Warriors, Faith Deployed, Toys For Tots and the Order of the Eastern Star. Patti currently works with the nonprofit organization, Hope for the Warriors.
For her efforts, Patti was awarded several awards including the Saginaw Masonic Lodge Outstanding Community Leadership Award an Appreciation for Support Certificate by the USMC 1st Battalion, 24th Marines of Bravo Company and special recognition at the 6th Annual Got Heart, Give Hope® Celebration hosted by Hope For The Warriors in Washington D.C.
