Personal Profile

When I started my leadership journey, I was young and very often the only woman in the room. I didn’t know what I didn’t know.  I wish I’d had someone to help me navigate the corporate environment to keep me from making the career and leadership mistakes that held me back.  I had to learn the hard way – you don’t!

My career has enabled me to travel the globe and work with, hire, train, motivate and develop a very large and diverse group of people. I have been lucky to participate in leading edge training and business experiences.  All that knowledge has enhanced my ability to coach with empathy and insight.  I love to help people see their own potential, help them believe in their dreams and see those dreams fulfilled.

Cultural Perspectives

It’s important to know that you are the only one that is responsible for your career.  And that you can turn your setbacks into renewed energy and a new path to get what you want.

It is also important to understand that training & coaching is essential for success at the next level.  Kathy works with women just starting out their leadership careers, or all the way up the corporate ladder. She is passionate about helping women uncover their self-limiting beliefs, habits and blind spots that can hold them back from the person they could be, in the career they were destined to have. Because transformational change is difficult on your own.

She is a thought provoker, sounding board, challenger and someone who will hold you accountable to reaching your goals.
