Kathy has had a broad based career that encompasses client service and organizational management in both the consulting and non-profit environments. After over twenty-five years of management consulting experience, Kathy changed her focus to an area about which she have always been passionate – enhancing and encouraging individual development and expanding inclusive leadership. Over five years, she envisioned, developed and implemented the Women’s Leadership and Diversity & Inclusion Programs at Navigant, emphasizing leadership development and employee engagement. She also expanded the programs to focus on the leadership development and engagement needs of Millennials and young professionals. Working with small groups and one on one, she coached individuals on career and skills development to achieve their desired objectives.
Kathy is also a nationally exhibiting and award winning artist. She brings her creativity and artist’s focus to her work in leadership development. The artist’s vision and focus provides a unique metaphor for the activities of the leader. In addition to enhancing leadership development, art based programming can foster the development of creativity. Any individual can recapture the creative spark, and apply that creativity to innovation and enthusiasm for any endeavor.

Her goal is to help clients by creating effective programming that supports the organization and the individual in their evolution to meet the business and talent development needs of the twenty-first century.
Prior to working in leadership development, Kathy worked with clients and their counsel to address their most pressing commercial litigation, business and regulatory needs, helping them make more informed decisions and achieve successful outcomes.
