Katy lives for solving problems and making people’s work lives better. She began her career on the business side, moved into a technologist role, then into solution sales and transformation. She is passionate about transformation in all its forms, including career transformation. She advises and mentors those at inflection or transition points in their career journeys, both on what paths are open to them and a roadmap to get there. In her role as Business Architect, she works with companies of all sizes, including the largest search company in the world, to bring operational improvement, transformative solutions and, most importantly, empathy into business processes.
She created the first CPQ (Configure,Price,Quote) user group, co-organized 50+ person Salesforce BAM training, works to help young adults on the Autism spectrum find meaningful and lasting employment, studies for professional certifications, is on track to exceed the Spotify playlist limit, and is an avid San Antonio Spurs fan.
