My Name is Kate Garnes.

I am a speaker, choreographer, kickboxing trainer, youtuber, and all around normal girl trying to leave this world a tiny bit brighter than when I came into it.

So I'm guessing you found yourself on this page to learn a little bit more on who I am and where I've come from
So here we go: 


Originally from the great state of Missouri, I was an only child raised on unsweet tea, playing outside, and teenage mutant ninja turtles by a strong single mom. Growing up small compared to others her age, I always felt the need to try to chase that pesky little thing called perfection, which of course was a losing fight. In working with youth for over ten years, I can see the same chase for perfection in teens that I saw in myself. I use my story of going from being put in trash cans in high school, to being a performer at Walt Disney World to a personal trainer for former professional athletes and top corporate executives to help teens see their own value apart from the chase for perfection.

My energy, humor, and genuine love for others has captivated audiences from California to Florida. Your audience will be no exception! 

When I'm not speaking, I can be found in Orlando, Florida teaching tap dancing, eating tacos, and kickboxing… not at the same time...



I really am. I work hard. I refuse to quit or give up. I don't want to look back someday and regret not going after what I wanted... and I don't think you do either. I want a life full of adventure, love and hope. 

Today I continue to travel the country speaking at schools, conferences and other events. I also do live motivational video's via you-tube every monday.
