Kathleen Whibbs
Kathleen is a Florida State University graduate with a degree in elementary education. Once she realized her “calling” was the medical field, she returned to school for her RN. Currently on an extended hiatus from her dream job as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit nurse, Kathleen is a stay-at-home-mom, her REAL dream job. She and her husband, Mark, are parents to three beautiful girls, twins, Evelyn and Sloane, 5, and Blaire, 4, all born within 12 months. Kathleen enjoys being with her family and friends, her “tribe.” Without them, she could not have survived the last five years of ups and downs. She loves beach days, pool days, mango White Claws, rap music, dancing, and laughing. There’s no sugarcoating with this mama; she tells it like it is, honestly, and with her whole heart.
