It was time for a New Life, a New Career in Nashville.
Few people find their calling through footwear, but for Katie her boots gave her an energy she hadn't felt before. Her boots started conversations that gave her connections and confidence that started her New Life and New Career in Country Music promotions.
Katie knew nothing about the Country Music industry but her cowboy boots got her foot in the door. She asked a lot of questions and was willing to intern for free, just to gain the experience and to help the cause. With a background in sales and marketing, Katie connects country music artists with brands and charities through promotion and events.
She spends half of her time in Nashville and has covered events with musicians including Craig Campbell, LoCash, Charles Esten, and Pete Scobell to throw a few names out there. Her favorite charity is the Lone Survivor Foundation. Katie loves that she can reach such a large audience now, with a positive message. Her work expands to homeless shelters, care packages for military and even random strangers who just need a friend.
Katie enjoys her time back in New Jersey with her kids and husband. It is hard to be away from family, but when she's home she puts all of her energy into being a better mom and wife.

Buy the boots. The energy will follow. Have faith in yourself. Be ready to be invincible. Be ready to be YOU.
