Our founder and board president, Katrina has a passion for Beautify the Meek which comes from personal experiences. She was emotionally and physically abused in her first marriage. That's not all. Back in 2000, Katrina began to suffer from autoimmune diseases ranging from Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome while Myositis, Degenerative Arthritis and Myalgia only complicated things further. SLE attacks major organs, tissue, and joints.
She ended up losing not only her job and her social life, but her
physique too. She has not allowed Lupus or other things to define her, though. She has earned her Masters of Education from Liberty University, she graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of North Dakota with a Bachelor with Cognates in Literary Works and Technical Writing, Bachelor of Science in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Religion - from Excelsior College of Albany, New York, and a Paralegal Certificate from Colorado State University-Pueblo. Katrina has earned multiple credentials and certificates too.
Katrina is a Christian and attributes all of her success and triumphs to her faith, her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. God has allowed her passion to spring forth as an image, personal and career service consultant. Katrina is honored to be the mother of three wonderful children, De Vaughn, Isaiah, and Joshua.
Katrina Currie, Domestic Abuse Survivor
(WLOX) -- It's a lesson in life and in lifestyles that's giving domestic abuse victims a chance to scrub away the scars of their old lives, to help restore their inner confidence. Katrina Currie learned the lesson first-hand. "We're not supposed to be bullied or pushed into a corner. My epiphany was, when I was drug down the stairs, I realized this is not for me," Currie said. Currie now has the strength to stand tall and help other women do the same. Her charity "Beautify the Meek" reaches out to neglected women, empowering them to face the world. "You can be a woman of power, a woman of authority, a woman of presence. That doesn't mean you're overbearing. You're humble and meek. But meek does not mean weak. Meek means strength in the Lord," Currie said. Through makeovers, job coaching and counseling, Currie wants to give a gift of hope to these women and reassure them that it takes a little beauty on the outside, to help their internal beauty shine through. "You can be a size 2 or a 22, it doesn't matter. You deserve to feel confident. When we do those classes, those women become confident," Currie said. Eventually the charity will provide new outfits and free makeup to participants. Currie hopes it will help to restore their broken spirits and bring a beautiful smile back to every woman's face. Currie started the charity in March, so it's still in its infancy stages and she needs lots of donations.
