Where do I begin...
My name is Kaitlyn Sara Herman and I grew up on the North Shore of Long Island, NY. I feel that my life's journey has lead up to this moment — pursuing my passion as a life coach.
About five years ago, I experienced my first panic attack. The feeling of panic was one of the worst things I had ever felt — all consuming, and debilitating. Little did I know that the very first episode I had was just the beginning to many more years of panic and anxiety.
In addition to my mental struggles, I constantly found myself feeling ill. It wasn't until almost four years later, I was diagnosed with selective IGA deficiency. Having IGA means that I am prone to any mucus related illnesses including Tonsillitis, Strep throat, Pneumonia, Bronchitis, etc. Each time I fell ill, I'd find myself in a mental spiral, questioning whether my feelings of sickness were stemming from anxiety or if I was actually sick. I'd go back and forth, asking myself, "Is this real physical sickness or just anxiety causing physical symptoms?" After the diagnosis, I realized that it was both.
The diagnosis changed my life for the better. I realized that I had a choice. I could either let this syndrome define me and fully take control of my life ... OR I could let this syndrome act as an opportunity for self love and discovery.
I chose the second option.
In the months following, I discovered numerous authors who specialized in mindfulness, love, and personal growth. I now practice meditation, manifesting, journalling, affirmation and more. I recently quit my job as a junior talent coordinator for a music management company in NYC and began a program to become a certified Life Coach.
