Kathryn Merrill

Kathryn is a mother of 2 boys, who she loves to experience and explore the world with. She grew up in Nebraska, where she met her husband while getting her Physical Therapist degree in Omaha. She worked for years as a PT until her first son was born. Now, she has the awesome job of being a mother. “My youngest is on the Autism spectrum. I’m passionate about spreading knowledge to all people about the diagnosis to help diminish its mystery and illuminate a different and beautiful way life can be experienced.” 

Kathryn has loved running since she was 14, where she has always felt that it brings out the best in her and has opened up the world to her in a way that she “may not otherwise be brave enough to explore.”
