Katrina (they/them) is a queer, nonbinary and chronically ill writer, educator, patient advocate, mutual aid organizer, energy healer, and dreamworker who lives in Colorado with their adorable cat Harvey Milk (@harveymilkmartin on IG).
They write books as an activist, naturalist, and educator, and their stories involve the natural world, the LGBTQIA+ community, imagination, dreams, and empowerment. Most recently they published the zine The Covid Logs, Vol. 1 with their co-editor Michelle Dawn.
Katrina is widely published. Along with numerous articles in magazines, newspapers, journals, and websites, they contributed a chapter to Rebearths: Conversations with a World Ensouled (World Soul Books, 2010).
When Katrina is not writing, they run a tutoring business, Katrina Dreamer Tutoring. They are an Orton-Gillingham Associate and are certified at the associate level working under the guidance of a fellow. They work with children who are neurodivergent (especially those with dyslexia or ADHD), gifted, have learning disabilities, or are struggling with confidence, anxiety, and depression. Their tutoring technique combines mindfulness, meditation, and practical academic tools to help students feel more confident, comfortable with themselves, and successful academically and socially.
In the summer of 2023 they co-founded Covid Safe Colorado, a mutual aid project that provides masks, rapid tests, and other tools to help folks survive the pandemic. The group also organizes events and provides education about the best ways to stay safe from airborne illness (see @covidsafecolorado on Instagram).
Katrina holds a master’s degree in Consciousness and Transformative Studies and they are also the Colorado and New Mexico Regional Representative for the International Association for the Study of Dreams. They co-host a podcast, Dreaming Back to the Earth, which explores the relationship between the earth and dreams. They also occasionally teach workshops on dreams.
In 2011, Katrina traveled through seven countries in Europe for six months, tracing their ancestral heritage. Along the way, they rappelled off a 70 foot cliff, soaked in Icelandic hot springs, and swam in a Norwegian fjord.
