"Kate is the best UX designer I've ever worked with.

Her uncanny ability to create something out of nothing – that is, a vague idea into an elegant, functional design never ceases to amaze me.”

Jack Macleod, (Formerly) President & CRO, Alma

"Kate has an uncanny ability to take complex ideas & processes, and boil them down into intuitive designs & workflows.

Her design process from wireframes to full fledged mock-ups don’t only account for the basic use case, but go far beyond and deal with corner cases that could (and usually do) occur.”

Luke Jones, Lead Engineer, GENWI

Business Coaching for Entrepreneurs

Equal parts strategy & accountability, with a sprinkle of mindset and a whole lot of cheerleading, my coaching programs are designed for epic people doing epic things.

Things like founding a startup, quitting your corporate job to start an online business, automating or taking your business online so you can travel, or changing the world.

If you’re a first-time entrepreneur, I’ll guide you through starting, scaling and 10X’ing your business, without losing your mind or all your money.

Seasoned pro? I’ll consult with you weekly on product and hold you accountable for doing the hard things.

The result?

You feel confident.

Like, practically all the time.

I support 5 epic people at a time as a personal coach & my #1 goal is helping you achieve yours.

Kate is a phenomenal coach and cheerleader.

She is constantly encouraging me to dream bigger about my business, which I launched a year earlier than expected in huge part due to her encouragement. I would not be where I am today with my business without Kate’s guidance.”

Christina Thelin, Los Angeles

It didn't take Kate long to figure out how to push me forward and build momentum.

“It’s like she knew me forever. She has very good insights and quickly grasped my struggle. I wish I’d met her years ago.”

Maxime DeBlue, Montreal, Canada

Kate is absolutely amazing at what she does!

She has a natural ability to help you identify your fears of diving into entrepreneurship and how to get past that. I’ve since quit my full-time job to focus on my business. I can’t thank Kate enough for giving me the confidence to pursue my dreams of working for myself.
