David received his Bachelor's degree from the University of Houston in 1981 and passed the CPA exam in 1986 He served as audit manager with KPMG’s Houston office for six years before transitioning to private industry where his focus has been in the healthcare and technology sectors. He has actively volunteered in several non-profit organizations over the years serving in various capacities including board president and treasurer. He is a vegan and a supporter of animal rights.
David has been a life-long animal lover and feels that animals, both domesticated and wild, need to be protected from abuse and acknowledged for what they bring to this planet. Domesticated animals like dogs, cats and fish soothe our discursive emotions when we’re feeling sad, anxious or angry; they bring joy and happiness to our relationships. "How many of us have experienced returning home at the end of a long work day to our tail-wagging dogs at the front door greeting us or just wanting to connect and play? Or like my kitty Moonpie who would hop up the sofa and lie on my chest purring softly as if to say it’s okay papa you’re home now."
Katie is a licensed and accredited Heal Your Life Coach and Teacher Trainer, Certified E.F.T Practitioner, Ambassador/Regional Co-ordinator for Project Happiness, Rainbows Facilitator and currently training with Pet Partners to become a Amitola Care Farm Therapy Team with her two Miniature Donkeys, Rainbows and baby Sunny.
Katie founded No Rain, No Rainbows four years ago in the U.K, the name was inspired from a plaque she was gifted to mark the end of along period of adversity. These experiences inspired Katie to share self love learnings with women and children whose lives were also affected by trauma, particularly abuse.
Katie has always felt a strong connection to animals and has experienced first hand their healing qualities. Her love of animals inspired her to become a vegan several years ago and more recently has inspired the launch of Amitola Care Farm; a safe, nurturing space for people who have experienced trauma to connect with animals in nature.
Katie moved to the U.S.A and now lives in Indiana with her best friend and Hubby, Johnny, and their growing family of animals that bring much love and joy to their lives and others.

COMPASSION. CREATIVITY. CONNECTION
The human soul is worth fighting for. It is the part of us that feels, that has compassion, creativity and connection to the living reality of the body and the natural world. The human soul wants to thrive. The only world it knows to be true, is love.
