Meet Katie Rogers, Feng Shui consultant and owner of Katie Rogers Feng Shui from Birmingham, Alabama, from Tanya Jahnke, IFSG Board member and Director of the Virtual Chapter
What do you get when you cross PURE love & a Southern Belle? Katie Rogers! I just want to catch a plane to go share a glass of wine with this sweetheart in person! I know you will too! Katie was raised down South in Mobile, Alabama and has found her way back home to Alabama to raise her daughter, Ava and share her gift of Feng Shui in Birmingham.
Q: Please share a bit about how you became interested in Feng Shui.
A: Katie was an English major at Vanderbilt and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in screenwriting. She was randomly introduced to a Compass School Feng Shui mentor in LA and also started to devour books and classes on Feng Shui. She moved to Austin, Texas for a temporary job in publishing at a huge company. Katie said the moment she stepped off of the elevator she felt the energy drop. It was the first time that she “felt” the energy of a space. She intuitively decorated her cubicle and started helping friends (and herself) to “make their atmospheres happy!”
Q: How does being a Feng Shui consultant in Birmingham, Alabama affect your approach and how you are received by potential clients?
A: When Katie lived in LA, “you could throw a rock and hit a Feng Shui consultant.” Practicing Feng Shui in the South required Katie to communicate and language her approach in a way that is very accessible and the person is able to hear it and open their hearts and minds to the benefits. She has encountered a few clients that worry that Feng Shui conflicts with their religion, but Katie is able to disarm them with her incredible charm and results that speak for themselves. Oftentimes, after a client feels the transformation of a de-cluttering session, they are excited to incorporate Feng Shui suggestions.
Q: What do you do to maintain and uplift your personal Chi?
A: Being a single Mom, Katie finds balance by getting back to the basics. Self-care and simplicity so that she is able to be fully present and inspirational to her daughter, her clients and her community. Katie is a Reiki Master, loves yoga and carves out time to snuggle/read/play with her adorable daughter, Ava.
Q: Do you have a fun client success story to share?
A: A single woman met the man of her dreams within a week (and Katie was invited to their wedding!), after making a few simple tweaks with items the client already had. She took two separate pieces of art (one of a diamond and one of a telephone) and put them together in the Love Gua to symbolize an engagement ring and excellent, loving communication. They also added a heart shaped box that the client wrote the ideal qualities of her future mate. Voila—Feng Shui works!
Q: Do you have any exciting projects or fun news to share?
A: Education is a big piece of the Feng Shui journey for Katie. She was asked to teach a series of Feng Shui classes at the library, since her first class was so well received. She was also recently licensed to teach Feng Shui for Real Estate to realtors to earn CE credits. She recommends all of us call our state office to find out how easy it is to get licensed and share the benefits of Feng Shui with the real estate community. Katie recently offered a de-cluttering course that received amazing feedback and she was thrilled to help clients take baby steps to change and satisfaction. As Katie says (and we all believe!)…the results are palpable!
Q: Any parting words for the International Feng Shui Guild networking community?
A: “I am just SO grateful for y’all! This community is amazing!”
