I’ve had itchy feet since I was a teenager. My parents took me on summer road trips every year across Canada and ever since, I have been hooked on the notion of always being on the move!
The name KathrynAnywhere came about close to twenty years ago! About to embark on one of my first international travels, my mother wanted to know how to get in touch with me , so I set up an email account for my parents to contact me as I travelled overseas, “Kathryn” for my name and “Anywhere” as in they could reach me anywhere I went..
My travels have taken me to South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Switzerland, Italy, Honduras, Mexico, Cayman Islands, St. Thomas, Cuba, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, all over the United States and coast to coast of Canada. I’m a huge fan of Disney vacations, having made about 20 trips in my lifetime. Any time I am home in Toronto, you can be assured that I’m suffering from a severe case of wanderlust.
I am the mother of two sweet, beautiful and loving children. My daughter, Miss M who is 8, is a voracious reader and talented artist. My son, Little Man, is 4 and I think he will be the captain of the Canadian rugby team one day as he is a wicked tackler.
I am perhaps best known as CIO – Chief Imagination Officer and as an Undercover Ninja over at OnFire Films. For many years I have worked away behind the scenes – I’m a Canadian Screen Award / Gemini Award / Canadian Cinema Editor Award nominee as an editor (lifestyle television and documentary) and sometimes I direct too. Some of my best known series work is Income Property (HGTV/DIY), Hockey Wives (W Network), Canadian Pickers (History) and Descending (OLN).
I have also conceived and conceptualized video campaigns with social media influencers to bring brand vision with their names and faces to life. One day I decided that I can do that too and here we are! Live stream videos that I host have been seen on Mom Cave TV, Reality Moms, Blunt Moms on Facebook as well as my own page. I have broadcasted live from Epcot in Walt Disney World (with their permission and with their PR people standing by) and have hit 56,000 views! I talk about parenting, wine, travelling, good food and whatever the audience wants to talk about.
Despite the fact that I am 100% fuelled by coffee daily and wine on weekends, I suffer from hypothyroidism and was diagnosed in 2013 as having Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disorder. This lead me to wanting to be a fitness fanatic, even though I had been athletic during my teen years, it suddenly made sense why I had struggled with my weight my entire life no matter the course of action I took from fad diets to extreme workouts.
