Katrina Pfannkuch – Creative Katrina 


Creative and Content Consultant, Content Strategist, Writer, Editor, Podcaster

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 and creative goals, as well as write and edit content that directly supports their business or projects 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 specific project or in their business. Then, I write and edit content to support those efforts.

My passion is to collaborate with and support solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, creative entrepreneurs, artists, coaches and businesses who want to craft a clear direction towards specific goals and projects, then generate content to stand out from the crowd.

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 iTunes , Google Play, Spotify & 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.
