Why Me as Your Next Speaker?

From the decades I spent living and working in Japan (speaking fluent Japanese) to my nationally acclaimed work transforming healthcare cultures, people are thirsty for the life support tools I share. As such, their impact sticks around long after our time together.

With a pioneer’s heart for helping people partner with the deeper part of themselves, and a passion for pushing beyond perceived limits, my 30 year career has spanned the globe and a spectrum of industries: a decade in global trade living overseas, ten years as co-creator of a regional restaurant enterprise, and now with Carson Tahoe Health in Northern Nevada since 2009, serving as Director of Mission Integration.

“Kitty is that rare combination in a speaker – a really great storyteller and a really fabulous person. She is smart, genuine, funny, inspirational and perhaps most important, real. She draws from personal experiences to create her presentations with an ease and comfort that makes for a wonderful and inspiring experience.”
