Wavemakers is an initiative I've kickstarted with Femme-O-Nomics’ founder Leah Eichler (@Femmeonomics) that profiles female innovators — women who are constantly blazing new trails, inspiring others and revolutionizing the status quo. This week we meet Kathryn Starke. Based in Richmond, VA, Starke is an urban elementary school literacy specialist, public speaker, children’s author, and the founder/CEO of Creative Minds Publications and Consulting, a global educational company that exemplifies quality literacy instruction. You can connect with her on Facebook and follow her on Twitter @KathrynStarke1. Describe your current state of mind.
Happy and peaceful! I always try to surround myself with pleasant people and enjoy the simple things that make me happy. In addition, I like to self-reflect at the end of each day to be at peace with everything in my life.
2. If you could choose what to come back as, what would it be?
I’m really grateful for who and what I am and only want to continue to grow and achieve more things.
