Work Hard Mom Hard

Aug 8, 2019

Katie Dragos is a mindset and personal growth coach, nutrition mentor, full-time marketer, triathlete, marathoner, and wife and mom of 2 extremely active boys. Currently working full-time in marketing, she has combined her love of creativity and helping others with a focus on getting busy mamas out of the hustle and into their own power with a one-on-one coaching program called “Unleash Your Awesome.”

Working in a hectic marketing and television corporate environment for over 16 years, Katie knows the struggle of trying to make work and life feel balanced, healthy, and fun. After having her first son, she discovered a life-changing nutrition system that allowed for her to regain her confidence and get back into working out and running, all while having a baby and continuing to work full-time. She took on coaching roles helping other mothers achieve their health goals, hosting running meetups and stroller walks. One year after having her first son, she ran her first full marathon, and did the same after having her second son. 

Five years into her nutrition journey, she has more energy than ever and wants to spread the joy that she experiences daily to other mothers in her community. She co-founded the Anne Arundel Fit Moms group, and together they host free weekly mom meetups and mom’s nights out. This positive mom’s community has grown to over 1,000 members in the Maryland area.

Through empathy and one-on-one conversations, she is passionate about helping other busy mamas identify the missing link to finding their joy, manage their time more efficiently, and do less in order to achieve more. Katie and Kari discuss finding the perfect routine with active kids, receiving feedback positively, and how to combat overwhelm and anxiety.
