As a devoted family man, my proudest achievement in this life is being a dad. I couldn’t admire my children any more than I do. Their accomplishments in their lives continue to astound and impress me. My daughter Katie is always full of wonderful surprises.

For several years, Katie has been making a name of herself in the fashion and blogging worlds. She has been featured in Martha Stewart, Popsugar, and The Daily Dose with Dr. Dennis Gross. Additionally, Katie writes for The Huffington Post where she shares her hopes of inspiring readers “to create and curate” their most fashionable lives. And Katie’s work isn’t just focused on fashion, or at least that’s not all there is to it. She takes great care to educate her readers about ways they can feel empowered to make a difference in the world. In a recent blog, Katie writes:

“I’ve been thinking a lot about social responsibility lately, and in particular, what, if any, role social influencers in the fashion industry should play as controversy unfolds on the world stage.

I don’t know what the answer is, but I believe in finding balance. I want people to be able to read my blog and view my photos without being constantly reminded of what’s happening in the White House, sure. But I also want people who may be feeling down and out to know that I’m on their team. Because I have a platform, I have an opportunity to advocate for love and honesty and the things that matter in life as well as politics. Like everyone, I sometimes make mistakes sometimes along the way. But since authenticity is quite literally my brand, I feel I have a responsibility to speak up, when the situation calls, for what I believe in. It’s not just an accessory, either. It’s a necessity.

That’s why, if you do notice a secondary theme to my blog, it’s support for women.”

I love that Katie is so strong in her beliefs and I’m constantly wowed by her self-possession as a leader and entrepreneur. To read more of Katie’s work, follow her on Instagram and Twitter.
