This unique gathering provides a refreshing opportunity to dream, innovate and plan for a bright future; one that is in harmony with nature and rich in diverse cultural and educational opportunities.”

Katie Pepe is a trusted advisor to parents of children with special needs. Her expertise in natural remedies helps parents seeking alternatives to conventional treatments. As a “first responder” to families in crisis, Katie helps parents become fearless advocates for their child’s highest potential at home, school, hospitals and institutions.

Her passion for people and ability to connect through spirituality, regardless of denomination, inspired her training and subsequent ordination as an Interfaith Minister. Katie twice served as a delegate to the Parliament of World’s Religions in Barcelona, Spain and Melbourne Australia. She organized an Interfaith educational and musical presentation for the International Day of Peace in Central Park. She counsels spiritual seekers of diverse backgrounds and facilitates inspiring retreats, workshops and ceremonies. A North Jersey native and proud mother of three recent college graduates, Katie now calls Asbury Park home and delights in its cultural diversity, live music and proximity to the beach.
