Meet Katie

I have a passion for helping clients discover their values, make intentional choices based on these, and realize their truest potential in life. The coaching model I use is highly interactive; I don’t have the answers to make your life better - you do. I’ve spent my professional career in Human Resources over the past 11 years in both specialist and generalists roles in various sectors from retail to manufacturing. Coaching has always been a core component of my HR roles; as I developed more of an interest in this area and I completed the Coaching Training Institute’s formal coach training and certification process. Currently, I work as an Executive Advisor at BetterUp, a coaching startup based in San Francisco. 

I’m a native New Yorker, but have lived in 4 other states and Switzerland in the past decade. Most recently I resided in the bay area for nearly 6 years before my most recent move to Washington, DC in early 2019. I attended Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations for both undergraduate and my Master’s degree. I enjoy giving back to the community and volunteer for Girls on the Run, my alumni’s ambassador program and as a volunteer career coach. In my free time you can find me on a yoga mat, traveling the world, surfing, reading, writing snail mail or training for a half marathon. I’m an eternal optimist so you can expect this in your coaching sessions. Set up a sample session with me to see how coaching can help you achieve your goals. Read More...


One-on-one sessions geared towards:



In every sport a coach can either be found on the sidelines or behind the scenes.  A tremendous amount of physical preparation is required in athletics, but there is no underestimating the mental challenge and preparation required as well. Coaching off the field between games is just as important as game day, (if not more so). I’ve always had a passion for playing sports and living an active lifestyle, and have experience working with college athletes as a team tutor, career coach and mentor.


Leadership looks different to everyone. You may be at a self-leadership level, working on improving yourself and work performance, leading a team of others, or even leading an organization and entire function. I work with a variety of leaders ranging from professionals in manufacturing, nursing, teaching, tech, retail and non profits. I coach leaders in various functions and at varying stages within their careers.  


According Jean Twenge, a social psychologist at San Diego State University and author of 'Generation Me', anxiety among millennials is at an 80 year high! I frequently mentor and coach millennials transitioning to the workforce, or navigating a change in career path. Given my background in HR, this is an area that I specialize in and really enjoy. We are all in transition at various stages of life and it is often helpful to have a thought partner during these exciting times of change.

Sessions are face-to-face, via Skype or by phone.


Once you schedule a sample session with me we will speak for 20-30 minutes and conduct a brief coaching session on the topic of your choice, free of charge, for us to see if we would like to continue working together. Contracts are a minimum of 3 months and a maximum of 9 months.
