Born and raised in Germany, Katy spent four years traveling the world before moving to New York City. After multiple years in the VC/Tech space in the US, she expanded her business to the UK, bringing a global perspective to her work with innovative and purpose-driven organizations. Her understanding of psychology and personal development enables her to facilitate leaders to transform their perspective, performance, and peace of mind. Katy’s mission is to support and develop growth-focused CEOs and entrepreneurs so they can positively transform societies, economies, and the world.

I’m committed to providing only the highest standard of materials on business, leadership, and high performance psychology. I’m certified through IPEC, the highest-rated coaching school in the US, and ACC accredited by the ICF, the most recognized regulatory body for coaching globally. I’ve also been trained by The Scaling Up Institute, the coaching organization associated with the world’s renowned Entrepreneurs Organization.
Initial engagements typically begin with a six month period, and can then be extended indefinitely. As coaching is new to many, and is largely still an unregulated industry, I offer a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. If after the first month of working together the benefits are not apparent, all remaining sessions can be refunded. I’m proud to say I’ve had a 100% satisfaction rate thus far.
While there are key areas many of my clients appreciate focusing on, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Therefore, all programs are tailored to each individual and their organization. Combining the IPEC methodology with the Scaling Up framework, a series of one-page tools which more than 70,000 ﬁrms have used to scale their companies successfully, my clients have access to the most effective tools of leadership and organizational development.
Instead of stringing together a bundle of sessions, I’m committed to creating true partnerships. Working with me means having access to me at any time within 24 hours and being supported through the highs and lows of entrepreneurship and business. Coaching is not about fixing anyone. My clients are proud to have an executive coach by their side who has no interest other than their success. Therefore, I take on only a limited number of clients to ensure full focus and support.
Since I’ve been running my own businesses from a young age and don’t have a typical consultant or corporate background, I understand the challenges that come with entrepreneurship. Having traveled to over 30 countries on a 4 year long trip and started a business in New York City, I bring a global perspective to my work.
