Meet Katy Blevins Calabrese
Marketing Strategist, Business Consultant, Process Management Specialist, Content Expert, Freelance Speaker & Writer
After a lifetime of faking perfection and clawing her way up the corporate ladder, Katy decided to drop the curtain and get real with her friends, her family, and most importantly, herself. A self-professed, raging workaholic and obsessive perfectionist, she is intimately familiar with failure and maybe not so familiar with herself. As she fully embraces entering this #seasonofkaty, she is learning that the laundry is better off almost always, almost done and life is more and more about purpose and family, and less and less about success and public opinion. An expert in all things Super Mario Bros. and old school Nintendo, she loves hanging at home with her newlywed husband, twin sons and teenage daughter, giant wannabe-chihuahua 150lb. dog/chicken Gambit, one very large bearded dragon, Cricket, a handful of mostly alive fish and one barely deserves to be mentioned, annoyingly lacking in personal space, black cat, Leo.
With over a decade of experience in sales and marketing, Katy was recently recognized as a 2016 Inside Business Women in Business honoree. An avid writer, Katy was the original writer behind the mommy blog, Chaos & Kiddos, and has contributed to a variety of respected media outlets, including Scott’s Local Business Corner: The Drive, The Huffington Post, The International Bloggers Association, She Knows: Experts Among Us, FamilyShare.com, The Female Entrepreneur Association, Inside Business, Curatti, UK Linkology, This Woman Can and more. She speaks regularly to small business groups, entrepreneurial circles, workshops for professional women and working moms, high school classes, virtual seminars and public events.
