Hi. I’m Katie. I’m here to help non-profit and mission-driven CEOs & senior leaders like you, to rediscover the joy in your work, so you are happy and impactful as you seek to create a better world.

Want to know MY seven surprising ways to reignite your passion for work?

This free practical guide will help you move on from feeling overwhelmed, jaded and exhausted to loving your role again.



Are you a high-performing non-profit CEO or senior leader who’s passionate about your mission?

Are you longing to be more effective with limited resources?

Are you committed to bringing out the very best in your team?

Do you wish it could be a whole lot more fun and a lot less grind?

Then you’re in the right place.

It’s tough in the non-profit world, I know. The current environment is complex, fast-changing and uncertain. But – it’s more than possible to make a positive difference and love your work at the same time.

Thats what I’m all about – supporting CEOs & senior leaders with 1-to-1 and group coaching to help them lead with confidence, joy and purpose in these challenging times.

How to work with me

Group Coaching


Leading from the Sweet Spot is my small group coaching programme for ambitious and talented women leaders who want to make a difference, inspire their teams to even greater things and dramatically grow their positive impact, alongside a group of warm, experienced and supportive peers.




1:1 Coaching


One-to-one coaching is the most powerful way to create long-lasting change.

I coach non-profit and mission-driven CEOs and senior leaders to push through barriers and shine in their work. I’d love to help you and your colleagues do the same.

I offer four bespoke one-to-one coaching programmes. 

Speaking & Events


From speaking to your team on topics such as Tackling Imposter Syndrome and Building Trust to gathering groups of like-minded peers for connection and support.
