Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Katheryn Thompson. Them and their team share their story with us below:
Dr. Katheryn Thompson, known in many grassroots communities as Dr. K The Executer, has always been passionate about connecting with people and bringing awareness to local, national, and global communities. She has advocated for over 25 years on behalf of many worthy causes and her efforts seamlessly impacts organizations and changes the lives of people every day. Dr. Katheryn Thompson has an innate ability to connect with people in communities that are under-recognized and underfunded. Dr. K has curated, managed, and campaigned for multiple non- violence mass movements, international women empowerment launches, and various health & wellness projects. The No More Violence Movements have launched in over 40 states.
Her accomplished list of projects includes Healing the Broken Domestic Violence Awareness Forum at the University of Texas at Arlington, International Women’s Empowerment Movement (IWEM) at the Houston International Trade Center, Tackling Sex Trafficking with the Department of Homeland Security, and executing the Fort Worth Wellness Walk event, partnering with the National Diabetes Association for National Diabetes Awareness Month at O.D. Wyatt High School. She strategically plans events that help bring awareness to worthy causes on a level that immediately gains supporters and solidifies funding to meet the needs of every community she serves.
From the moment Katheryn shared her voice on K104 radio, she instinctively knew that her true purpose would always include a connection to people. During her teenage years and for the first time ever, Katheryn found her purpose birthed from a tragic high school event. A bullet shot and killed a classmate in her ninth-grade year. This act of violence and moment of unbearable pain fueled her passion to advocate for the cause. Her true purpose took root in conversations with people and recognizing their concerns. She realized that her planning efforts could directly impact the lives of others. Katheryn curated, managed, and executed a local talent show to bring awareness of violence and its impact on others. She also curated and facilitated a step show at the community center to which multiple high schools participated. Katheryn completed an interview on DFW’s K104 FM, a local hip- hop radio station, who also advertised for the upcoming event. She had an epiphany that day and it was evident that her purpose aligned with her beliefs as an advocate for cause.
After graduating from Arlington ISD, Dr. K was determined to find the true meaning of life and decided to pursue higher education focused on spirituality and coaching others on a purpose filled life. She is not a religious person, but very spiritual. She has obtained degrees from Gospel Ministries Outreach Theological Institute (GMOR) located in Houston, Texas. She received a BA in Biblical Studies in 2007, Master and Doctor of Religious Counseling in 2014, and Master of Purpose Driven Power in 2021. Dr. K understands one must first identify with their gifts, understand their purpose, and unapologetically accept and fulfill their own destiny. Her education and spirituality have been the foundation of her beliefs towards humanity and goodwill to all. Dr. Katheryn Thompson started her own consulting and promotions company, Courcities International, in 2016. She created this company to help organizations bring awareness to important causes by connecting communities to tools, resources, services, and options for support. Her noteworthy efforts in building relationships and facilitating promotional events & campaign operations continue to expand her platform to provide the wow factor in sponsorship opportunities.
Whether raising awareness for a cause or finding a promotion for a solution, her efforts build impact and effect change in the lives of people. Passionate for the cause is more than a concept for Dr. K, it is her way of life, connecting and campaigning all the way for causes that matter most. Dr. Katheryn Thompson has been happily married for 15 years, has two children, and 1 grandchild, and resides in the Upper Gulf Coast area in Texas.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road is never smooth. I have experienced homelessness, my family being separated, knowing that my trust and mustard seed faith would find the sun rising the next day. People take advantage to get what they need from you and you never hear from them again.
A young at heart lady told me once that she saw God’s aurora all over me. From that moment forth, I knew that if she saw it so did every one else.
There was much purpose for me to fulfill. To much is given much is required.
The VISION for Courcities International was given in 2014. There was PURPOSE for me to fulfill on the earth!
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” ~Jeremiah 29:11
There is a song that has carried me through on my journey, “Increase Me” by Vicki Yohe. My PURPOSE was revealed in high school. I know “getting it out the Mudd” was relevant to my particular story. Faith, Perseverance, and Endurance can carry you until the end. I strive for Courcities International (c-Our-Cities International) to be a Legacy and Inheritance for my children and grandchildren.
Truly, some are called and some are chosen; some have one gift and others have many. “Your playing small does not serve the World. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel unsure around you.” ~Marianne Williamson
“We’re for a Cause, not just because!”
