True personal growth lies on the other side of hard experience.
Why do I say this?
Imagine living a life with debilitating shyness, intense insecurities, autoimmune diseases, a kidney transplant, a devastating divorce, another kidney transplant, and the loss of a dream career.
Except - I didn't have to imagine it. I lived it.
As human beings, we typically resort to Kicking and Screaming when we think, 'This shouldn't be happening to me." It's only natural to feel sadness, pain, grief and anger. But holding on to victimhood and wallowing in self-pity or other negative emotions, that's Kicking and Screaming.
Believe me - I did plenty of it!
Yet I persevered through each of my pain filled experiences and kept emerging with something amazing and unexpected: Illumination.
Illumination. The awareness of, if that hadn't happened to me, this new thing would never have occurred. The true personal growth that I feel happens on the other side of every hard experience.
Enjoy a "Koffee with Kasey" and journey with me through these pages to learn how I evolved through my life challenges. My intention is to hopefully inspire you through my stories, towards gaining self-awareness and learning how to embrace your moments of challenge, ultimately becoming the most wonderful, peaceful, powerful, lovable YOU!

What People are Saying ...
"I can't thank you enough for taking the time to meet with me. It truly means a lot to me. After our meeting, the first thing I told my dad was that you are on my list of the greatest people I have ever met."
Kate, daughter of former Mayor
"I am not a person to run to the self-help section of the book store, but Kasey Bergh is beyond 'glass half-full' in her approach to life. Her persistent belief that approaching EVERY experience with gratitude is the key to a good life is borne out in her inspirational story. She is an open book worth spending time with."
Katherine Smith - Executive Director, Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship
"I have known Kasey for many years and have watched her navigate many challenging life experiences. Through them all, she has shared her learnings with others so they can benefit and be inspired by her journey. I watched her share her story of overcoming medical interventions with others who had similar experiences-they were uplifted by Kasey's joy and passion shown through her personal storytelling. People gravitate to Kasey and when you hear her, you will too."
- Betsy Cohen, Executive Director, Mosaic Project
