Business Owner

If you're a mid-size company CEO, President, or Owner, Kat is your "secret weapon" to unlock the next level of greatness in you, your leadership team, and your results.


There is no one more dedicated to your success and making the necessary shifts in your business to unleash the true greatness within. If you get the chance, RUN don't walk, to bring Kat into your organization to transform your executive leadership team and get everyone working at their fullest potential.



Program Consultant

Kat’s lively presentations are timely, relevant and incredibly impactful. Her ability to inform, connect and inspire make it a meaningful and memorable experience for everyone.

Her contribution is helping us achieve our goal of bridging the gap in the military and civilian divide and helping our vets learn vital ways to lead in the private sector, especially across generations.

Vice President

Kat has helped us grow from 5 to 8 locations, while creating one cohesive culture where everyone's voice is valued and respected. Engagement and productivity have soared. Her customized training and leadership development program touches everyone in our organization.


In our recent expansion to the Great Park, we were able to fill all new supervisory positions from within – saving time, energy and money AND ensuring that our culture continues to thrive.

Kat’s "InSync" multigenerational sessions have challenged our assumptions and resulted in amazing insights from the most unexpected people . . . our Gen Zers. A delightful surprise!

Business Owner

I met Kat through Leadership Pasadena, and she was hands down one of the BEST speakers we had for the curriculum. Our class motto originated in her session - to listen with COURAGEOUS CURIOSITY!


I got to know Kat even better when she joined the Women’s City Club of Pasadena and held her workshops there. She was always professional and eager to support other members of the Club. Kat quickly became a “go-to” expert for many of our business members and nonprofit organizations.


Kat is laser-focused on helping organizations make the shifts required to thrive in a new world with the new challenges AND opportunities created by the pandemic. You can count on the highest level of excellence and professionalism, along with the added bonus of a witty and brilliantly wonderful women who supports her local community.

VP / Strategic Leader

There are three words I would use to describe Kat: Passionate, Skilled, and Measured. Passionate, in that she wants to get to know you and be responsive to your needs.Skilled, in that she is a master of her trade staying current and relevant with all the new strategies and why they work. Measured, in how she communicates and coaches.


Kat is a results-oriented professional. Her work is of the utmost quality and execution and consistently delivers beyond my expectations, with impeccable results and clarity. Her excellent influencing skills combined with outstanding listening skills and patience, help me get everyone aligned and committed. She helps me position myself and my team for what’s next.


It’s been satisfying to take what I've learned from Kat and share it with others. Kat generously shares her knowledge and her deep network of contacts even when there is no direct benefit to her in doing so.


Pauline Field

Board Chair

Kat is a knowledgeable, talented and caring coach and consultant. The work she does in corporate, small business and nonprofit organizations is always stellar and impactful. She is known for moving them to action, and powerfully so.


Kat has produced results in her own life which give her a firm foundation for guiding others in their businesses.


While President of the Pasadena Women's City Club, I had Kat speak to our members, unravelling the mysteries of Boomers, Millennials and more, and how we can better work together. Everyone was fully engaged, and many said it was the best and most useful presentation they had heard in quite a while.


Ofer Abutbul

Business Owner/President

Kat really cares. As a result of our work together, I feel equipped to meet the challenges before us with clarity and confidence. Our leadership team in more committed than ever to rally the troops and make things happen, with much less stress.

My work with her has actually been life changing. I am continually impressed by how many challenges we resolve and its impact on our culture and our bottom line.

Kat is helping me step up more fully into my role as President and allow our leadership team to do what they do best! We now have the right people in the right roles who are laser-focused on creative solutions that will help us now and set us up for even more success later.

Senior Pastor

Kat's leadership in planning and facilitating annual strategy retreats for our multicultural, multigenerational organization is helping us achieve our mission of "unity in diversity" -- now more than ever.


As Board Chair, Kat elevated our leadership capacity and allowed us to capitalize on each person’s strengths. She has helped us to be strategic and develop a thoughtful and purposeful course of action that has contributed to our continuous growth, individually and as a church. At a time when most churches are in decline, we are thriving as a result of her leadership.



Business Owner

If you are looking for change, look no further than Kat. She draws from a well of resources that are customized for each client. She provides insight and uncovers blocks in an empathetic, empowering way. I keep a binder full of the tools we worked on together and continue to build on that solid foundation.


Her brainstorming ideas for brand building are incredible as well. She elevated me from a Financial Fitness Coach to a Personal Finance Strategist. I can’t thank her enough for sharing her expertise and for her strategic planning.




It is critical that I get out of the weeds and empower others to manage day-to-day operations. Kat’s expert consulting and coaching is helping me do just that.

Letting go is a challenge. Kat is providing the ongoing support and accountability I need to stay the course.

Kat helped shift our mindset around what's possible for our growth. The immediate increase in revenue has allowed us to expand our reach and our impact, even during the current crisis .

With our fast growth, Kat's executive coaching and actionable tools have been priceless. She helps me prioritize seemingly endless, competing priorities. As a result, I've been able to stay focused on what's most important as we continue to enhance our programs and service, with much less stress.

Kat is the ultimate partner in every way. Her strategic perspective, creative ideas and joyful approach makes working with her a true delight. Audiences resonate with her genuineness and fun style. She delivers every time.


She puts both her heart and her incredible wisdom into everything she does. You feel heard and understood in a profound way and her insights are stellar. She is also open and willing to learn and adjust to be responsive to the needs of diverse audiences. I’m proud and honored to have her partnership, trust, camaraderie and friendship.

Professional Facilitator / Keynote Speaker

When shift happens, Kat's the person to call. She has the unique ability to impact an entire organization with expert consulting, coaching, training, facilitation and dynamic presentations.


I’ve had the pleasure of co-facilitating with Kat and she is professional in every respect. She creates an atmosphere of collaboration and creates the space for me to show up powerfully as well.



Executive Director

As a community leadership development organization, we are at the intersection of personal leadership development, community partnership, and local knowledge immersion.


Kat not only gets the difficulty in navigating to the heart of what we do, but she also steps fully into one of the circles for a moment, then jumps to another without missing a beat. We truly value her guidance as we grow and shift our own program offerings to meet today’s needs.

Kat served on the Board of the Pasadena Chamber when I was first hired as CEO. She was helpful and supportive and provided great insights as a leader on the Board.

I also worked with Kat in her role as a consultant.


I have some of her workshops. They are always clear, insightful and well worth the effort to attend. Her generational workforce insights are right on point and very useful and helpful. She's also fun to work with.
