Founder / Lotion creator
Kathleen (Kat) is co-owner and creator of Lucky Kat Lotion. A fierce mama bear, devoted to creating ethical and succulent lotions, for those that give a sh*t about what goes on their families bodies. We speak to fellow Mama Bears (and Papa Bears!), who seek responsibly made, non-toxic products, and has adopted a holistic approach to running a household. Kathleen and her family lived on Kauai for 12 years, the last 5 proving to be the most challenging, as they lived completely off the grid. It was during this time that her daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Smith-Magenis Syndrome. This diagnosis became the driving force behind wanting to create the most holistic household possible. She became a DIY geek, and Pinterest hoarding maven, the end result being a beautiful assortment of lotions, that has developed a loyal following.
In addition to running Lucky Kat Lotion, Kathleen is on the fundraising committee for PRISMS (Parents and Researchers Interested in Smith-Magenis Syndrome) and has helped raise over $5K for Smith-Magenis Syndrome by hosting fundraisers and running half-marathons. Her quick wit and wisdom garnered her a "most original" award for an article that was featured in the Holistic Fashionista Magazine. Kathleen has an impressive global vision and Lucky Kat Lotion is now a member of the Global Shea Alliance as well as the Grow Africa Network.
