About the Authors

About Brooke (on the right)
The name is Brooke, but as the youngest child in my family I have nicknames coming out of the wazoo, so really I answer to almost anything. I currently reside in Seattle, Wa and absolutely love it. I don't plan on moving anytime soon but I'm prone to making rash decisions so who knows where I'll be a year from now. My resume consists of a wide spread of jobs from wilderness guide to health coach, but most recently I've landed a big kid job with a company called Takouba, who is a vendor for Microsoft so it's a pretty good gig.  I’m an avid outdoors lover and can be found hiking, camping, paddle-boarding, and running year round. I go through phases with reading, sometimes I can devour books and other times I can't sit still long enough to read a chapter, but overall I'd put it in the "things I love" category. Also in that category is food, flowers, fireworks and friends. I'm pretty easy to please. I whole-heartedly aspire to become my best self, but believe it's  a life-long process not a destination.

About Kat (on the left)
So basically, my name is Katrina but I go by Kat. Long story short, it’s just easier to say in my professional and personal life. I am a speech-language pathologist in Granite School District and St. Mark's Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT. I married my husband last year in the LDS Oquirrh Mountain Temple in South Jordan, UT. Basically, everything good in my life has happened in Utah, so this is where I plan to stay! I absolutely love reading and can usually be found balancing my time reading between four and five books. I have recently started enjoying what I call “the art of homemaking” (a.k.a. sewing, cooking, housekeeping, budgeting, etc.). I am an avid fan of organization, planners, to do lists, and straight lines. In my former life, I enjoyed writing and became quite good at it! I hope to hone my writing skills once again, so bear with me if things start out rough. Exercising and healthy eating are things I am trying to incorporate into my lifestyle. I love the idea of self-improvement but loathe the idea of perfection.
