My Story

Hi! I’m Kate. I’m so happy you stopped by or stumbled upon my website. I wanted to create a beautiful space online for people to experience joy while learning, growing and healing old wounds. I want my site to rise up and greet you like an old friend.

This is a judgement-free zone where compassion and self-confidence rule. Speaking of rules, we create our own rules here and in our lives. We are our own standard of beauty. We are redefining what it means to be “successful,” and we are extremely empowered.

My work is filled with honest, authentic, uplifting, soulful lessons and some humor. I don't pretend to have all the answers. I believe we are all in this together, and continue to learn and grow from one another. The mistakes I make along the way are beautiful gifts containing valuable lessons to make me a better and stronger coach and woman.

Manifesto

I believe in warm hugs, the power of prayer and meditation and fresh starts. I believe in honoring my body with positive self talk, trusting I am on the right path and releasing all that no longer serves me. I believe in inhaling clarity, and exhaling self-limiting beliefs. I believe I am worth everything my heart desires, and giving myself just that. I believe I am strong enough to overcome anything that comes my way. I believe in asking for help. I believe in laughing so loud everyone in the room looks over to see what is so funny. I believe in creating the space for people to be their most authentic, vulnerable selves. I believe in smiling for no reason at all. I believe the best is yet to come, and saying ‘thank you’ for all of life’s tough lessons. I believe I can do anything I choose is important enough. I believe in me, and I believe in you. We were born to be spectacular. Let’s do this!

Professional Bio

Kate Eckman has spent much of her life in front of the camera.

Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, she was voted, “Most likely to have her own TV talk show,” by her high school classmates. Friends and family describe Kate as fun-loving, hilarious, determined, hard-working and compassionate—someone with an infectious enthusiasm who loves life.

Kate attended Penn State University on a swimming scholarship. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in communications, and headed straight to Los Angeles to pursue her dream of becoming an entertainment reporter.

It didn’t take long before Kate was interviewing hundreds of prominent news makers like Angelina Jolie and President Barack Obama.

After four years of red carpet reporting in Hollywood, Kate went to graduate school and received her master’s degree in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.

She spent five years working as a TV news anchor and reporter, primarily for NBC News affiliates. She covered the courts in Chicago, was a White House correspondent in Washington, D.C., and specialized in reporting on wildlife and the environment in South Florida.

Grateful for her reporting experience, but ready for a new challenge and adventure, Kate moved to New York City and reinvented herself as a model.

She has worked for some of the biggest names in the fashion industry including Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Target, Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Lord & Taylor, Sears, Playtex, Marina Rinaldi, Tommy Hilfiger, Eileen Fisher, Jones New York, Coldwater Creek, CJ Banks, J. Jill, Belk, Bonton, David’s Bridal, Boscov’s, Destination Maternity, Miraclesuit, Faviana, Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, Rue La La, Laundry by Shelli Segal, Lady Grace Intimates, Oprah Magazine, Woman’s Day Magazine and Redbook Magazine among others.

Kate is thrilled there is a place for her curvy body type in the fashion world now, and hopes to inspire young girls and women to be fit and healthy and love, accept and honor their bodies. She also teaches the importance of focusing on one’s inner beauty and uniqueness.

Kate also works as an on-air beauty host on QVC, and has appeared in national TV commercials. She is a certified Reiki master, energy healer and student of Transcendental Meditation. Kate is a proud graduate of New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass Level 1 & 2, and Gail Larsen’s Transformational Speaking Immersion.

I'm committed to taking charge of my own happiness and stepping into my own personal power, and would love to show you how to do the same. My coaching philosophy is about guiding you to achieve your Soul Goals, which means living a life that feels really good, and lights you up from the inside out. For me, that means more peace, joy, love and abundance, and the ability to bring that to others as well.
