Her expertise in the convergence of technology and the business makes her uniquely qualified in a constantly evolving industry.

Growing up in a family where her engineer father, among other things, evaluated emerging computer technologies for IBM, and a brother who is now a Senior Project Manager at Harvard University, dinner table conversation was both creative and visionary.

After a few years, Kathy was recruited by Huntington Learning Centers, the first tutoring center for children in the country, and worked directly for Eileen Huntington. From there she was asked to run the Admissions Department of a technical school.

After senior positions with the Solomon-Page Group and Robert Half International, Kathy was recruited by Liquidnet, a premier institutional investment network that facilitates institutional equities trading for asset management firms worldwide.
