COACH + FACILITATOR
Kate is a certified Executive Coach, Facilitator, and the Founder of Development Corps. She partners with clients who seek to find, reconnect with, and explore their authentic genius. Her clients, who are predominantly women in their second act of life, realize the thinking and behaviors that served them well in their first act may need to shift as they invest in what matters most. She supports her clients to set an inspiring vision for the future and to design empowering beliefs and behaviors that align with the vision. A
lover of questions and believer that 99% of the work to be done occurs with a shift in mindset, she finds meaning in supporting clients to live more integrated, whole lives while also achieving never-before achieved career success.
