Katrina Walker is an outstanding example of how to beat the odds when they are stacked against you. As an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and motivator, she took being a witness to cultural, domestic, and financial tumult and converted what she learned into a motivational tool to fight victimhood. Walker went from being a struggling teen bride, to a divorced mother of four, to a trailblazer who has over the past 25 years built thriving enterprises; including a 24-hour day care center, multiple real estate holdings, a record label, and state-of-the-art recording studio-all while becoming a self-made millionaire.
Her renowned Tennessee based RainbowKidz Learning Center is currently expanding into a national brand, while Walker is being busily pursued as a motivating life coach, with personal stories that demonstrate that anything is possible.
The experience of being in an abusive relationship, both mental and physical, allowed her a keen sense for spotting those in similar crisis, and out of this has grown yet another community supportive enterprise at Walker's helm: the BE (Blind Eye) Foundation, whose mission and motto is to "BE the difference and not turn a Blind Eye to society." With the impact of her encouraging words and motherly guidance-often delivered through her sassy, tell-it-straight, southern style-she is using the BE foundation to launch ongoing, nationally aired PSA's that will weave a true picture of domestic violence-chronicling the cycle of abuse from male and female perspectives. Not only will her media campaign shine the light on often undiscussed areas of abuse, she will narrate solutions, encouraging a way out of victim-hood.
Walker is writing her memoir with award-winning journalist Clarence Waldron, former Jet senior writer and editor, who was mentored by the late best-selling author and poet, Dr. Maya Angelou.
Katrina Weidman is a senior at Penn State earning a dual degree in Integrative arts with an emphasis in music production and Theatre with an emphasis in performance. She originally wasn’t going to attend college, but after dropping a friend off at University Park and seeing the campus, she knew it was where she belonged. The next day she signed up for classes at Bucks County Community College, which she attended for two years before transferring to Penn State University Park in 2004. Besides being an investigator for the Paranormal Research Society, she’s been a member of the Penn State Snowboard club since 2004. In 2005 she joined The Lion 90.7 fm as a co-host for a variety of shows and voice over work.
She was born and raised in Bucks County, PA along with an older sister and a younger brother. She was born into an artistic family – both of her parents perform in their spare time and her mother writes original musicals for local playhouses. Some of her earliest memories are watching her mother and father tap dance together on stage; this also coincides with some of her strangest memories of her father dressed in drag for multiple shows. “Either way, my parents helped to shape my love and appreciation for performance art, which is why I’m a performer; I guess you could say it’s in my blood.”
The entire premise of our show is based upon where all are now after the train wreck of Katrina...10 years ago. Many have experienced the miracles of destiny....bringing them to new spaces not even imagined before the storm. Lives have changed...Circumstances have changed and, in the end, we are faced with a different world to which we may have gained comfort within...only to be torn asunder by the game-changer: Hurricane Katrina!
Life hits us with circumstances that sometimes seem insurmountable. When a catastrophe, like Hurricane Katrina, comes and inserts herself into the very essence of our being responding to such is naturally traumatic and devastating. However, in the end, at least from my experience, all things happen for a reason....and the divinity that has created us as human beings allows us opportunities for growth through such times.
This radio blog show has always been mostly about the good stuff that has changed human lives as a result of the storm. Tonight, we will talk about how calamity in our lives can transform us to heights that, perhaps, we never would have imagined otherwise.
Lura Lisa, a spiritual leader for Unity Association of Churches will join us this evening to give her perspective on the storm as well as to provide inspirational guidance to those folks who have suffered turmoil, PTSD, or other negatives associated with the storm.
This show will be inspirational to all who have experienced the wrath of Hurricane Katrina.....whether for better and/or worse. Or frankly the upsets that ocurr in human lives...It doesn't have to be a storm...We all have things that happen outside of ourselves that impact us...Let look at this wit open eyes and open hearts...
Wishing all well...and bidding you Namaste in your lives...

Welcome to the Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After
Pets and Storms
The demographics and statistics are amazing. There are 2.5 animals (cats/dogs…etc. for every American home).
When a population of almost a million evacuates an area and is forced to leave their pets behind…the result is 2.5 million animals…homeless…ownerless…destitute. This was the situation during and after Hurricane Katrina. Indeed the animal issue was largely overlooked by all the rescuing agencies Federal and otherwise.
After Katrina, the animal population was largely overlooked within the rescue and aid infrastructure. All of the guests on Tuesday's show were on the ground and dedicated to the rescue of the animals left behind.
With hurricane season starting June 1st, this show is timely and hopefully can be used as a resource for the animal lovers of the Gulf Coast.
Please join us this very special evening as we welcome our returning guest, Award Winning Author Jenny Pavlovic. We will discuss an extremely important topic....preparing our beloved pets for a hurricane. Jenny Pavlovic, animal rescuer and author of the award winning book, “The 8 States of Hurricane Kate,” will share very valuable advice and insight regarding the necessary precautionary measures needed to safeguard our furry friends and all animal creatures BEFORE a hurricane strikes. Hurricane season is fast approaching - June 1 through November 30, 2015. It's not too early to listen and learn what to do in advance. Please don't wait until it's too late. Feel free to call in and share, comment, question, discuss with Jenny.

The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.
