She is an international best-selling author, speaker, consultant, reiki master and integrative health and cancer coach, working to change the way we look at chronic disease. Her best-selling book E.A.T. An Unconventional Decade In The Life Of A Cancer Patient was written in journal format, and is based on the 18 journals Kathy kept during her battle with two rare and aggressive cancers. Prior to her cancer diagnosis, Bero’s work ranged widely to include advocacy, facilitation, and consultation along with leadership development in the U.S and abroad.  Bero has been recognized nationally for her significant contributions in environmental advocacy and education, and executive produced the two-time Emmy award winning documentary WORTH FIGHTING FOR.
