About KaT ATWELL (KATWELL)

As a Gen X woman, mom, individual with a diagnosed brain condition, and an unapologetic extrovert, Kat has a lot of stories to tell, and an unabashed, honest desire to share them. Recognizing she's not the only one who has felt alone, alienated, or smothered by self-doubt, she seeks to reassure those who are living in similar, not-so-trendy shoes by providing compelling content to publications, blogs, companies, non-profits and the public at large. 

You want your event to be successful?
Get Kat.
She’s a headliner, but far deeper than your typical comic and much funnier than your average emcee. She’s the evening you’d hoped you’d planned.
— Jared Ewy, Superstar

Because translating complicated, life-impacting topics to empower people to confidently make educated decisions is old hat to Kat after 15 years in finance and healthcare, you know your readers will be in good hands with even the toughest of topics. You'll discover for yourself how quickly she builds trust and rapport as you determine the scope of your project or event. 

Whether on stage or social media, Kat's first-person narratives and anecdotes are relatable and hit home. Her writing and performances encouraging people to be more authentic and open, connecting in ways they haven't before.

Kat is a fantastic presenter with a stage presence that’s hard to beat. As an emcee, she rolls with the punches and keeps the event moving with a fun and engaging style that keeps the audience where she needs them. I love working with her!
— John Wilker, Founder of Ignite Denver

By candidly sharing her lived experience with depression, anxiety, bipolar, and negative self-talk, Kat transforms difficult and sensitive topics in such a way that they don't seem so scary and alien.  Whether or not she's speaking directly to brain issues, there's always an underlying theme to her pieces - you are not alone.

If you need a writer, blogger, emcee, inspiring speaker or storyteller in the mental health, parenting, wellness or female empowerment space to keep your audiences inspired and entertained and readers coming back - Kat Atwell is your woman.
