  • Supporting scores of entrepreneurs — especially women — in ways that have truly helped them create and scale businesses and social ventures

  • Forever falling in love with words so that she continues to write books and help others achieve their dreams of becoming authors

  • Starting multiple successful companies after having a long and wonderful career at Saatchi & Saatchi

  • Laughing, loving, and living in big ways so that she doesn’t miss a moment of this wonderful thing called LIFEKathy
