She is co-author with Rick Kahler, CFP®, of Conscious Finance: Uncover Your Hidden Money Beliefs and Transform the Role of Money in Your Life. For three years, she wrote a column on stepfamilies for The Dallas Morning News, and she is the author of Making the Best of Second Best: A Guide to Positive Stepparenting. Her other professional experience includes working as a legal secretary, building computers and providing technical support, and serving as executive director of Onsite Training, which offered workshops and treatment for co-dependency.

Kathleen’s education includes a Magna Cum Laude degree in English and art from Dakota Wesleyan University and certification as a practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. She is a member of Toastmasters International. The mother of two and stepmother of three adult children, she has experienced a first marriage that ended in divorce and a second marriage that ended with the sudden death of her husband in an accident. Much of the insight in her work has been distilled out of the pain of those life-changing circumstances.
