Kathy Rosner

Kathy’s life and career choices have taken the course of three cycles of change, each over a 16 year cycle. She graduated with a teaching degree from NIU, but was unable to find a teaching position. She, therefore, decided to get adventurous and become a flight attendant for the next 32 years (including 16 with Eastern Airlines and 16 with American Airlines). After 9/11, the world changed and so did Kathy. She decided to retire from the airline industry and work from home. She can now be home for her sons and family when they need her. “Going Green” was becoming popular after 9/11, so she decided it was time for a career change. Kathy became a marketing executive for Melaleuca.com.  She was very fortunate to be able to work from her home. She loves educating families on how to keep their homes healthy and safe—wellness on a budget. She started www.CEOmoms.biz and now teaches other Moms how they can work their own business from home and be there when their kids need them most! The 3 – 16 year career cycles have now come full circle, back to where she started with a teaching degree. Kathy will continue this career of helping others with Melaleuca.com for many years past 16!

Kathy has been the DPWN Barrington Chapter Director since it began in 2010. Many women have started and grown their own businesses through DPWN Barrington membership.

Great Things Happen Outside of Your Comfort Zone!

We all go through cycles of Comfort and Change in our lives and careers. It feels good to be in comfort mode. Change can bring fear- fear of the unknown.  Kathy believes that magic happens in life, when you face your fears. Yes, it does take courage, but your life can become pretty amazing when you decide to step out of your comfort zone!

Mikaila Soto

Mikaila Soto comes from a typical Puerto Rican Hispanic household. She was born prematurely with bronchial issues. Mikaila spent most of her teenage years in the Humble Park neighborhood in Chicago IL.  High blood pressure and obesity were very common in her family due to the unhealthy Latin food habits. As the mother of two boys, Mikaila knew that she wanted to live a healthier life style. Choosing to be a positive and healthy role model for her boys, she hit the books and became an AFPA (American Fitness Professional Association) Certified Personal Trainer. After several more years of studying, she also became a Certified Post-Rehab Specialist.

Balancing her own Fitness Studio, a business and family made it difficult to pursue a Fitness Competitor career due to her health issues and time constraints. As Mikaila always says, “If you don’t have the time, then make the time”. She wanted to encourage others that it’s never too late to choose a healthy life style. With pure dedication and determination, she decided to prep herself and enter a NPC show as a Figure competitor. With hard work and the support of her love ones, she earned her IFBB Pro card in 2010. Mikaila is a two-time professional OLYMPIAN competitor where only the best of the best qualify to compete in the Las Vegas Olympia Stage. She placed 7th in 2013 and 10th in 2015. She won the prestigious Olympia 2015 Most Improved Athlete of the year award. Competing at the Arnold Classic 2015 were 54 of the top professional WPD Women Physique competitors. Mikaila competed and placed in the top 10.

In early 2011, she became a Sponsored Athlete. After competing in 2011, she was admitted to the hospital with a severe case of pneumonia. She was also diagnosed with bronchial disease which is something that she has been struggling with her entire life.  She spent a painful 2 1/2 weeks in the Intensive Care Unit and endured a grueling four month recovery. Mikaila set as her goals to get out of her wheel chair, to continue her journey to stay motivated and to get fit enough to get back on the IFBB Pro competition stage. Mikaila unfortunately continued to be hospitalized several times over the years, even to the point of having to induce coma. She ended up spending as much as three months at a time in the hospital. That didn’t stop her from always pushing forward. She truly believed in living life to the fullest, so much that she ended up tattooing it on her right bicep “Live and Love Life  

She gets asked all the time about her full sleeve tribal tattoo. She explains that it’s not just a tattoo. It’s her body art that has special meaning to her. It’s her symbol of a true “Warrior”. As she adds more to it each time, she is fighting for what she believes in and fighting for her life.  She wears it with pride and honor.

“Live and Love Live”

Dying to Live

Mikalia’s journey into fitness has not been an easy one. She was born prematurely, with bronchial disease that has made it very difficult for her. She has been in and out of the hospital multiple times. However, after years of training and discipline, she was able to change her physical body. She feels compelled to motivate others to never give up and to follow their dreams.

Andrea Trovato

Andrea Trovato is a Business Owner, Entrepreneur, Public Speaker and Home Based Business Professional. She has been co-owner and President of RonTro Enterprises, a metal precision laser cutting company since 1999. A native of New York City, she now lives in Chicago with her husband Ron and their three daughters. Trovato’s early paralegal background proved helpful for business development.

For the last seven years, Andrea has excelled in the Home Based Business, specifically in Network Marketing by using the philosophy of leveraging time and resources. In this recessionary market, she knew additional income was integral in sustaining long term financial stability for her family. Most notable was her ability to help grow a European company, by recruiting, training and motivating a team of 1500 marketers in 9 different countries.

When Trovato was offered an opportunity to expand income and growth potential with Purium Health Products in the USA, she quickly took on a leadership role. This was a win-win decision for the promotion of a healthy lifestyle and recognizing the perfect timing of a rising Fortune 500 star in health, beauty and Superfood nutrition. This marketing model provided a powerful way to become a success and to pay it forward to help others build better health and wealth. In a few short months, she achieved the Diamond rank and won a leadership trip to California. She is a walking billboard based on the belief that what you put in your body will determine how you look, feel and perform. The Purium 20 Point Commitment to purity and potency and a commitment to 100% non-GMO products is a logical generational choice for any health conscious family.

As a speaker for audiences in the thousands, Trovato has also appeared on CEO Intronet TV Show, The American Businessperson Radio, The Daily Herald and WGN Radio with Bill Moller.
