With over 25 years of experience in HR and an emphasis on Leadership Development, Professional Growth and Employee Engagement, Kathie brings a unique and varied skill set to her clients. She enjoys working within all levels of an organization with the ideology that, while professional growth requires benchmarks and goal attainment, personal growth has no limits. She is particularly focused on strengths-based leadership coaching and helping individuals in deepening their self-awareness around their communication and leadership style. Her knowledge and experience spans across various industries including finance, healthcare, entertainment and technology.

She is skilled at customizing and facilitating workshops and engagement activities designed to create successful, cohesive and trust-based new teams out of prior separate entities. Kathie feels she has the best of all worlds working in both the 1:1 aspect of coaching as well as the 1:Many aspect of workshop facilitation.

She is also a certified practitioner of several assessment tools in the fields of Behavior, Motivation, Learning Styles and Emotional Intelligence.
Kathie lives in North Carolina, near her three adult children, where you will find her spending as much time outdoors, especially near or on the water, as her schedule and the weather permits…. unless its Spring, in which you will still find her outdoors, only sitting in the stands at the NC State softball stadium cheering on the Wolfpack and #6 (her daughter).
