Featuring Katherine Klimitas

HerNature asked Katherine, “What woman has inspired you to be the real you?”

Ellan Vavrick has been one of my best friends since I was a teenager, despite our 40 year age difference.

Ellan raised and provided for two daughters by herself. She is an accomplished insurance saleswoman, antique dealer, artist and teacher.

One of my favorite things Ellan used to tell me was, ‘You gotta work with what you got kid.’

She taught me not to sweat the small stuff and not to feel bad about using the gifts I was given to get where I wanted to go.

Whenever I feel like I can’t do something, I always ask myself, “WWED—What would Ellan do?”
