Kathy hired me as a development student assistant at San Diego State University and I’ve since worked with her at Sharp Healthcare and UC San Diego. She invested in my talent at every level of my career and helped me grow into the professional I am today. She has made this same investment in countless others. In every place Kathy has worked, she’s been able to turn teams around to the positive. She knows how to build a strong culture that works for individual needs and the larger organization, and she demonstrates time and time again what it means to empower people to be high performing. I have always trusted her to support me – to navigate challenges and celebrate successes! Trust in your leadership is paramount and something that makes Kathy stand out among other leaders.
