Katherine Hamaker's Bio
The journey so far…
As the president of Kat Faith, my journey into the fashion industry began in 2006, when I enrolled for Fashion Study and Fashion Merchandising at Allan Hancock College.
As a wife to a firefighter and a mother to four lovely kids (birthed two and took in two), I am a passionate entrepreneur, homeschool teacher, and business owner with six years of selling products on Etsy.
In 2016 my husband and I became a Resource Family to take in my niece and nephew. A year later, (2017), we got Conservatorship over the two children. In those same years, my husband Evan and I were trained in child development, which has given me the ability to connect better with my niece and nephew and other kids that are struggling emotionally.
Being an orphan myself from the ages of 4 to 8, I understand what it means to lose one's parents. This experience has imbued into me natural affection, empathy, and emotional intelligence to identify even the unsaid needs of orphaned children. I realize that the events that had taken place in my life at such a tender age were not by accident; I understand that they only empowered me physically, psychologically, and emotionally in preparation for working in my chosen field.
Consequently, I channeled my inner strengths and personal experience with the passion for designing and creating top-notch products to set up Kat Faith Inc. I am confident that this experience has equipped me with the necessary skills and knowledge to do good and achieve maximum success in my chosen path.
