Our Story

The moment of liftoff started with a breakdown, that led to a breakthrough for founder and CEO, Kate. It was after the third emergency room visit for exhaustion that she realized her successful career at a Fortune 100 company needed to change. No longer willing to pay the price, Kate left the safety net to find her way.

After a year of dedicated self-inquiry and science-backed supercharging of her health, she emerged a new person, the person she always was inside, but could never truly access over the 20 years inside the corporate structure. Kate discovered the answer to what she most needed all those years: The permission and support to focus on honoring her ‘human’.

Kate learned firsthand that when people honor their human, they succeed in every area of their lives. When left ignored, we become stressed and health fails. Emboldened with her insights, Kate went into action through entrepreneurship, building a team to launch, enabling human possibility to begin and scale through benefits and culture.

Kate’s mission is to stamp out the 5th biggest killer in America: workplace stress. Since sharing the message of human possibility and action with progressive CEOs, the movement is resonating, delivering major results for leaders everywhere.
