Special Guest Biography:

In a field where those with master's degrees are widely trained to work for state and federal agencies, Midwest Vocational Rehabilitation Services also places counselors with those credentials in the private sector. Katrina Mason, mother of three, built her small private practice into a six-figure business that partners with corporations to implement return-to-work programs, assists people with disabilities by offering vocational evaluations and career counseling, and offers litigation support to family law attorneys. She possesses Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and a Master's degree in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling. She has been featured in Forbes Magazine as an Entrepreneurial Superstar of 2021 where she was selected as one of the top 250 entrepreneurs that are redefining the American dream. She has always had a love for small businesses and a passion for the solo-prenuers that are striking out for the first time on their own. She brings years of business leadership experience from the corporate world and from the private sector.
