Katie Rogers Feng Shui is based in the vibrant Birmingham, Alabama. Katie offers consultations world-wide via Skype. and/or phone. She is the founder of the Wind Horse School of Feng Shui, which offers both a personal transformation program as well as the certification track.
Katie received her certification in Feng Shui in 2003-4 through the Feng Shui Training Center in SLC, Utah where she studied under author Sharon Stasney in the Tibetan Black Hat tradition through the line of Grandmaster Lin Yun. Katie is currently a member of the International Feng Shui Guild with Professional Red Ribbon status.
Katie stumbled upon Feng Shui in 1998, when working in a “sea of gray cubicles” under fluorescent lights. She intuitively grasped the negative effects this environment was having on the employees and had the bright idea to “make up a job going into businesses to make the environment better in order to create happier, more productive employees, therefore enhancing the bottom line of the company.” While browsing the interior decorating aisles of a bookstore in Austin, she came across Feng Shui and saw that job already existed. She put some of the tactics into place in her own home and in those of friends, and when she immediately started getting results, she was hooked.
Katie offers on-site and on-Skype Feng Shui sessions to offer clear and practical “cures” to any problem you may be experiencing.
Katie learned about decluttering and organizing by way of Feng Shui, when she realized her own “creative habits” were having an adverse effect on her life. She now teaches on the subject and declutters homes and offices for a living. Her inspirations are Karen Kingston and more recently, Marie Kondo.
A beautiful, functional home should also be an expression of those who dwell there. Further, an office space should fit the needs of the business. Katie combines her knowledge of “the art of placement” with her skills as an artist to help you choose the best colors, furniture, artwork, and accessories for each and every room of your house. If you are remodeling, she provides direct guidance on design from blueprint to installation, and will even manage your project, helping with everything to hiring contractors to choosing the tile or window treatments.
ARTIST / WRITER / FILMMAKER
Katie’s first love is writing, including screenwriting, which is what brought her to Los Angeles in 2000, where she also completed a documentary on the “feng shui of cities,” titled CarLess in LA. Katie has found work as a ghostwriter; associate editor at a publishing company; mural painter, preschool teacher; a p.a. at an animation house; and an educator and Forestry Manager at the non-profit, TreePeople.

Reiki is a form of “energy healing,” discovered by the Japanese master, Mikao Usui, who prayed to know the secrets of Jesus’ healing power. While on a solo retreat in a cave, he was blessed with a vision and information that he eventually passed on to students. Katie has been certified in all three levels of Reiki since 2005, earning her Master status. She does healing work for clients on a regular basis and uses her Reiki knowledge to help clear spaces during Feng Shui sessions.
