Caregiver Strategies for Military and Veteran Caregivers

Does this sound like you?


You need help finding a balance between your caregiver tasks and your personal development, but you don’t know where to turn.


You tried looking up success coaches and life coaches, but their advice isn’t applicable to your busy caregiver life.


You want to find someone who will understand the unique demands of your life and show you how to fit fulfillment in your schedule.

If those three sentences just described YOU: welcome, dear Glue-Girl. You’ve come to the right place.

I created She Is The Glue to share my caregiver strategies with women just like you. Women who are strong, intelligent and have dreams to achieve. Women who are caring for a husband or wife with military injuries.

Hi, I’m Katie. I’m a caregiver strategist and owner of She Is The Glue. I create products to teach women who are military/veteran caregivers how to life a fulfilling life. My focus is showing women how to balance their caregiving tasks with personal development, because when WE are fulfilled, we are better caregivers.

I’m a veteran caregiver, wife and proud Mama of two. I have twelve years of veteran spouse experience under my belt, and I understand the demands of the caregiver role. For the past few years, I have been serving caregivers who are looking for strategies to develop their own lives.
