People aren’t broken, and coaches aren’t here to fix them.
In alignment with her certification through the rigorous Coaches Training Institute (CTI), Katy believes that people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole.
She asks powerful questions, listens intently and holds space for her clients to surface the resources and ideas that they already possess.
Specific outcomes of coaching can include clarified purpose; prioritized goals; enhanced perspective and problem-solving; increased motivation and personal satisfaction; accelerated growth and development; increased fulfillment; deepened self-awareness; and both an increased ability to process uncomfortable emotions and to accept and act on valuable feedback.
But don’t just take our word for it.
Global companies such as GE, Goldman Sachs and Google invest in coaching for their employees to improve the aforementioned skills, all of which have a positive impact on the bottom line. Accordingly, some of the top business schools in the world, including Wharton, EM Lyon and the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT), are incorporating significant coaching into their MBA programs.
In fact, according to Forbes, “a recent global survey of coaching clients by PriceWaterhouseCoopers and the Association Resource center concluded that the mean ROI for companies investing in coaching was 7 times the initial investment, with over a quarter reporting an ROI of 10 to 49 times.”
Coaching has been proven to be highly effective in helping talented individuals achieve still more success. Focused one-on-one discussions centered on future possibilities have a powerful impact on actualizing personal and professional potential.

“Honestly, I couldn’t have imagined a better coach than Katy. She is an incredibly acute listener and was always flexible to meet me where I was. I really appreciated how she reflected my thoughts back to me so I could hear my own words and progress. As someone who doesn’t often pause to take stock of what I’ve accomplished, I really appreciated that she took time to do that with me (it really made me realize all I’d done!). The tools Katy provided me with were all incredibly helpful strategies that I’ll continue to use forever onward and that have made a huge impact in my professional and personal life.” – Iris Olsen, People Operations and Recruitment Leader
“I was nervous and a little skeptical when we first started our sessions. But now I feel like it helps me focus and that talking with someone like Katy who is so positive and open, brings me to thoughts and ideas and conclusions I wouldn’t get to on my own.”
– Karen Kruse, Operations and Finance Executive
“This was one of the single most impactful experiences of my professional career. Katy is authentic, thoughtful, smart, and compassionate. All these qualities paired with a depth of leadership and coaching knowledge made this experience invaluable. Katy always skillfully tuned into thoughts and behaviors while pulling me back to feelings. She was always able to use coaching stances while also providing me with new knowledge or frameworks.” – Adrian Mendoza, Educator, Coach, Manager
“I was really hesitant at first, and then I had this “Oh no! I have to think and talk about myself A LOT” realization. But then the coaching allowed me to be so much more introspective, and made me think about things I usually don’t – things that I’ve just moved on from in the past and then never taken the time to go back to. This helped me break it down and have a different way of looking at things so I could move forward.” – Allison Graham, Landscape Architect
“Through coaching with Pavo, I received valuable feedback from Katy and people I regularly worked with. That feedback allowed me to improve as a leader and more effectively pursue goals. It’s always nice to have someone ‘in your corner’ helping you improve and Katy was a great help for me.” – Justin Hayes, Engineer, Entrepreneur
