I am so excited to spotlight this resilient DV Survivor! She has an inspirational and encouraging story! She has found the courage to speak up and share her story! Her new book is a must read for everyone!

Kathleen A Pullin “Kathy” is an amazing woman. She is an avid BBQ cook and competitor! She is also a cater. She is a phenomenal woman and mother. She has chosen to share her story of surviving domestic violence. She is hoping that sharing her story and life will be an inspiration and light for others!

Kathy’s book, From Dark to Light, is her personal journey!  She hopes it will be one of healing and hope to others facing horrible times. A light for women who are now in the darkness of Domestic Violence. Every person deserves to be safe, healthy and loved. Kathy hopes her book will help others know their worth and to get out of a relationship if it is violent or dysfunctional. No Matter the situation, emotional, physical or mental abuse is not Ok! That is the reason Kathy chose to share her story!

She has overcome so much in her life. Starting over and rebuilding and reshaping her life after abuse. It is amazing that she had the strength to be vulnerable and share her story. To be open and transparent with such a personal and pain journey takes a special kind of strength. She has been able to rise above, and tell my story. She has many other achievements in her life. She has been on Food Network twice! She is an amazing BBQ cook. She has been chosen to share my talents on National TV! Twice! And she is on Local TV as Kathy Pullin “Grillin Gal”.
