Katelyn Denning is a full-time working mother of two, a wife and a life coach who mentors new moms just returning to work.
Having been a career driven professional for the better part of a decade before becoming a mom, Katelyn struggled with finding her identity and juggling it all when she returned to work after her first maternity leave.
Through counseling, coaching, research, support and plain old trial and error, Katelyn was finally able to hit her stride as a working mom and today, helps other new moms tackle mom guilt, be more present at work and at home and simplify their lives so they too can enjoy working motherhood. While her “me-time” doesn’t look the same as it did before kids, you can often find Katelyn squeezing in a quick workout, listening to audiobooks or enjoying the luxury that is a hot cup of coffee from her local coffee shop in Northside (Cincinnati).
