Katrina Pfannkuch – Creative Katrina 


Creative and Content Consultant, Content Strategist, Writer, Editor, Podcaster, Creative Mastermind Host, Visionary

I believe creativity is how you show up and create anything in your life. If you aren’t clear on what you want to create, how to open up your heart to create it, or feel you lack creative ability altogether, you aren’t alone. We’ve all been there — including me.


My passion is helping people tap into their inner voice, creativity and business vision, then create content that directly supports their art, goals and/or business to reach and exceed their intentions.


In addition, I love to support people as they identify specific creative blocks and/or fears, then create a personalized coaching program designed to address their unique challenges.


My goal is to help clients move from self doubt to creative confidence, from confusion to clarity, from fear to and resistance, and from limitation to abundance – and thrive. And last but not least, to create content that highlights all the ways they, or their business, truly shine. 


I have a unique background and combination of skills to support clients from a variety of angles. I’m a creative consultant, writer, editor, podcaster and a Creative Mastermind host with an M.A in Journalism. Each skill enables me to get a clear sense of where clients feel stuck, then offer them grounded, practical, clear strategies to move forward on a passion, idea, specific project, or in their business. I also write and edit content to support those efforts, if needed.


I collaborate with and support solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, creative entrepreneurs, artists, coaches, esoteric practitioners, filmmakers and businesses who want guidance or a mentor to help them craft a clear direction towards specific personal and professional goals and projects – and want insight on how to generate relevant content to help their efforts yield real world results.


In addition to my blog posts on creativity and mindfulness, I also host and produce a podcast called Flirting with Enlightenment. Twice a month I cover “everyday life” topics, and offer practical suggestions on how to tap into your own inner wisdom to create and foster a growth mindset. Listen on the website, on Apple Podcasts , CastboxGoogle Play, Google PodcastsSpotify & Stitcher .

My biggest strength: I “hear beneath the words”, which is a fancy way of saying I see the limitations you create and how you talk yourself out of your awesomeness.


What do I get out of this? I’m fascinated with what inspires people to create and how they choose to share it with the world. Above all, I love helping people cut through the old layers to expand into new, amazing depths of creative expression and confidence.


My core essence: Grounded clarity infused with creative sparks. I’m also sassy, fun and love to laugh. A lot. Just want to give you a heads up in case you find lightheartedness offensive and are altogether too serious. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.


Confused on how to say my last name? It’s pronounced Fan-cook and means pancake in German.  Now you know why I’ve created a more web-friendly persona, Creative Katrina, to make things easier for all of us. And yes, some friends do call me pancake.
