In 2017, Katherine launched five Facebook support groups to provide community, research and education for women, teen girls, caregivers, female veterans and medical professionals. These incredibly successful groups of 3,200+ members are active 24 hours a day, seven days week.
 
Katherine has presented to patient and medical groups from the U.S. Army at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (Germany) to the International Brain Injury Association's World Brain Injury Congress at the Hague.
