Story Published in April 2015 | Interview conducted in September 2014.
Katrien was the first person to SignMyCar! and give me an video interview. We met in September 2014, when SignMyCar! was a mere idea. Katrien's signature started it all. Listen to her story in the video interview below!
We met again in October 2015 to celebrate her 9th year in the United States and her family got to SignMyCar! as well!
Katrien moved to Washington, Missouri with her family when her husband got a promotion. It took her a while to adjust; but gradually Washington felt like home. Katrien likes the convenience of living in the US. She finds that raising a family in Missouri is fairly easy.
Washington, MO is a very cute town. It is located in the wine country of Missouri. The wineries around Washington, MO and Hermann, MO account for a third of Missouri's wine production. As a result, many events involving wine tasting are organized throughout the year.
You can discover Katrien's story by listening to her interview above. It was my first interview and I was really nervous. Katrien was actually the one to make me feel comfortable! After the interview, Katrien and her daughter offered me a birthday card. I had celebrated my 26th birthday the day before. The card features a funky cowboy that sings a funny song. I have put it on my fridge, where it still is. From time to time, the card falls and opens, playing a cheerful song in my kitchen. It reminds me of Katrien and all the wonderful people I have met through SignMyCar!
