Kathy Hart, Ed.D.

Kathy’s driving passion and unsurpassed expertise is guiding and supporting individuals and groups navigating change and transformation. She provides leaders with the support and resources needed to re-imagine and lead even more abundant, joy-filled and purpose driven lives.

Never one to settle for easy answers and was always striving for her next big adventure, Kathy accelerated into her midlife by completing a doctoral degree, starting her own company, and becoming a care giver for her mother – all in the same year! While your life changes may not be this dramatic, having a coach to support you, challenge you, and celebrate your successes can make all the difference in the world.

Kathy has dedicated her life to transforming those around her. As a young adult Red Cross volunteer, she worked with disaster victims to transform them into courageous survivors. Her girlhood passion of helping others evolved into a career in safety and health, and later organization development, working with executives and front line leaders to transform entrenched bureaucracies into caring, safe and healthy businesses. In 2012 she was recognized by the American Society of Safety Engineers’ Women in Safety Engineering as one of the top “100 Women Making a Difference in Safety”.

As a business owner she has advised, coached and consulted for such well-known companies as Genentech, PG&E Company, and Armstrong World Industries. Her clients have described her as a “trusted confidante and partner”, “an amazing lady to work with”, and someone who “challenged our thinking, celebrated our successes, and deeply cared about how to inspire and engage our managers.”

A highly sought-after speaker and educator, Kathy has presented professionally to audiences throughout the United States and around the globe. Described as an “energetic, relevant and engaging” speaker, she provides dynamic topics related to human change and transformation that are jam-packed with content.

Always the adventurer, from her doctoral research in Laos to riding camels in the Sahara Desert, Kathy, her husband Paul and their cat Miss Independent have embarked upon a global gap year of traveling and working abroad.
