Kathleen Terra was an elite karate athlete for 10 years. I was an Ontario champion for three years in my individual category and a Canadian champion for one year in my team category. With my team I participated in the Pan Am Games in Toronto. At 24, I retired and became a karate coach. I have a BA in Sociology and Gender Studies from the University of Toronto. Today, I am living in Mexico with my husband, rescuing animals and aiding the less fortunate.
