Who is Kate Kunkel?

Have you ever sat down and really thought about how you got to this point in your life?

It’s quite the exercise and I highly recommend it for everyone!

When I set out to do this bio, I struggled to decide – what about me is important to the message I’m sharing here? Why would anybody care about what I have to say, on this website, or in the information I share in my books or through my courses?

My journey has been filled with twists and turns, something I think most of us can relate to. I started out in the legal profession, then moved to writing and into the television and movie industries.  It was fun and exciting, but … fulfilling? Not really.

But in 1992, I had a life-changing experience and was given a dream in which I played a harp. It was then, finally, that I began to hone in on my life’s purpose.  

As a result, for the last nearly three decades, I have nurtured the gift of music, with my harp and vibroacoustic therapy, and shared its healing power through programs and coaching. 

When my Mom was diagnosed with dementia in 2010, a whole new dimension was added to my life, and I began to research and study this terrible disease. I hoped to help her reverse her symptoms, and while her diagnosis came far too late in the progress of the disease for my work to make a meaningful difference, I was able to improve my own memory and mind.

The lifestyle changes that I instituted to protect my own brain in response to Mom’s diagnosis led me to study more about nutrition and brain health, and I became a vegan nutritionist and trained with Dr. Daniel Amen to become one of his licensed brain trainers and a certified brain health professional.

Sharing the knowledge I learned on my own and in my various trainings, I created a program that I shared with friends and family who had amazing results as well, and I began sharing it with coaches. It is the Eight Weeks to a Better Brain Program that I now share in my book, “Don’t Let the Memories Fade” and with clients in coaching programs and classes. 

My mantra, and what I hope to instill in others, is this:

“It is never too early to look after your brain, but it can become too late.”
