Katie Chase was on product, operations and business development teams for Techstars, Startup Weekend, 8Stem and Package Guard, and before that led the Creativity and Leadership program at Oberlin College where she directed an incubator and accelerator program for student and alumni entrepreneurs.
Before Oberlin she founded and directed Advanced Educators, an online marketplace for continuing education, which served over 700 healthcare practitioners with courses and seminars. She holds an MBA in Sustainable Business from Bainbridge Graduate Institute (now Presidio), a coaching certificate from the HeartMath Institute and a Bachelor of Music in Performance and Education from Oberlin College Conservatory. She's been coaching since 2013 and founded WalkingKata following her 500 mile pilgrimage across Spain via the Camino de Santiago in the summer of 2016.
Her coaching, teaching and consulting draw deeply on her performance experience and training in continuous improvement as tools for developing and executing compelling stories in business and life.
