Being on both sides of the camera, Katarina has produced fashion campaigns and worked with several celebrities as a beauty specialist. Her well-respected status and beauty expertise in Hollywood get her invited to judge model contests and beauty pageants around the world.
Katarina is a Founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of classic, glamour lifestyle magazine VIVA GLAM established in 2012. VIVA GLAM offers alternative approaches to traditional lifestyle, with a strong focus on vegan, organic and cruelty free brands. Her mission is to turn one’s lifestyle into compassion. This year VIVA GLAM brand is expanding with a vegan clothing line VIVA GLAM COUTURE.
Being a vegan of 20 years and passionate about animals and nature inspired her to launch her own cruelty-free line of eyelashes KAT lash. “No woman is truly beautiful unless she has a heart. The trend of mink eyelashes breaks my heart so I decided to start a 100% human hair line of false eyelashes.”
Traveling the world, Katarina hopes to start a foundation to build small vet clinics in the rural parts of the world and islands, where hurt animals are left to die without any chance of getting help. She believes the clinics are also very important due to a need to spay and neuter.
Katarina supports great charities such as SCIL, Peace4Animals and PETA. She has also worked with RedLightChildren.org to help end child slavery and exploitation. Currently she teamed up with Leah Remini, WorldVentures Foundation and Nancy Lieberman Foundation on the DreamCourt project to build the first high quality basketball court at the Freeman E.
