Andrea Lynn Katz, CCS*
Certified Cancer Survivor

For over 25 years, Andrea’s wit and tenacity helped her survive and thrive in the corporate world.  Now, as both a corporate survivor and a cancer survivor, Andrea continues to use her optimism and hallmark sense of humor to help cancer patients, survivors and their caregivers, friends, and family turn unwelcome and stressful change into positive outcomes.

Andrea knows from what she speaks.  In the summer of 2006 she lost her job as vice president of marketing for a Fortune 250 company as a result of downsizing.  That didn’t deter her.  By January 2007 she became a partner in the consulting firm HessMorganHouse, LLC. ( and was appointed president of the firm’s communications consulting practice ( 

Less than one year later in December 2007, Andrea was diagnosed with follicular non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a treatable but incurable blood cancer.  That didn’t deter her either. While undergoing chemotherapy, Andrea created the character Chemo KateLynn™, formed Chemo KateLynn Productions, LLC. and wrote her first book: Chemo KateLynn: Humorous Perspectives on Life Before Cancer and After Diagnosis.

Although her initial chemotherapy regimen put her in remission, Andrea relapsed in January 2009, only six months after treatment. She then underwent more chemo and a stem cell transplant.

Still undeterred by all her health issues, Andrea is now living her professional dream as author and motivational speaker.  With her wit intact, she helps audiences of all kinds to become victors, not victims, of negative change.

Andrea’s own life and life-threatening experiences led her to coin the phrase and live by its meaning: “If you fall off your horse, get back on a camel.SM” In other words, when faced with change - be brave enough to do something different!

Andrea is a member of the Board of Trustees of the New Jersey Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Andrea has been married to her husband Michael for over 29 years.  They have two children - Lauren and Jared.  Andrea and Michael live in Randolph, New Jersey.
