Milwaukeeans need no introduction to Katrina Cravy. The Richfield mom of 11-year-old Billy has been a regular presence in our lives for the past two decades as the Contact 6 reporter, regular guest on the WKLH Morning Show and now as a motivational speaker and coach helping local entrepreneurs perfect their media images.
But here are a few things you didn't know about Katrina:
One of her favorite things to do with Billy is to have sock wars. Katrina explains that since Billy is an only child, "Sometimes I have to slip into the role of being a big sister." And that fun mom/big sister role clearly involves throwing balled-up socks at each other!
Katrina, her husband Scott and Billy live in a house with a pirate room. Well, according to Billy, it's not a pirate room anymore -- he's much too old for that. Now the room is home to Billy's digital studio -- it's where he makes his stop-motion videos.
Katrina encourages Billy to play with his food -- once a year. Check out these photos of Katrina's annual birthday cake-baking extravaganza, including the interactive "Angry Birds" cake she and Billy made!
