Katy Trost is a Professional Certified Coach through the ‘Institute For Professional Excellence in Coaching’ (IPEC), ACC accredited by the ‘International Coach Federation’ (ICF), and a contributor to Forbes Magazine. She specializes in working with Type-A personalities on leveling up their performance, increasing their capacity to lead and scale their company with less overwhelm. Her extensive knowledge and understanding of psychology and neuroscience combined with a deep passion for business and leadership led her to primarily working with entrepreneurs, founders, and CEOs. Her personal journey of mastering stress, burnout, and achievement addiction enables her to facilitate others in transforming their perspective, performance, and peace of mind.
Born and raised in Germany, Katy spent four years traveling the world, which impacted her mindset and outlook on life immensely. Through her research on how the brain manifests stress in the body, she was able to heal herself from years of chronic pain. Losing her mother to cancer at a young age reinforced her awareness of having a choice in each challenge, the choice of how to respond to a situation and turn it around. Additionally, Katy spent multiple months in a Buddhist monastery studying the mindfulness teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and learning how to implement them in order to improve performance and balance in life and business. She’s an expert at navigating her clients through difficult decision making, increasing their productivity, and assisting them in developing their leadership and management skills. Katy is now based out of New York City.
