Katy has spent her career helping organizations -large and small- that are taking bold steps to transform. She has successfully led teams through mergers and acquisitions, IPOs and spin-offs, reorganizations, executive transitions, crisis events, rebranding and much more.

Katy launched Audacia Strategies in 2015 to help organizations get more “bang for your buck” out of your transformation – whether it is planned or unplanned. Having spent years as a client, she brings a practical, roll-up-her-sleeves  approach to her engagements. No fluffy presentations here! Katy believes that relationships matter and credibility counts.

When you work with Katy you can expect  candor, transparency and laughter. 

Prior to launching Audacia Strategies, Katy served as Vice President of Investor Relations  at Exelis, Inc., a leading global defense and aerospace company. Prior to Exelis, she held several roles of increasing responsibility and leadership in Communications, Investor Relations and Business Development with  Northrop Grumman Corporation and Integral Systems, Inc. (now Kratos).

Katy is an active member of the National Investor Relations Institute and was recently recognized as a member of NIRI’s inaugural “40 Under 40” class. 

In her downtime, you may spot Katy enjoying  time with her husband and twin daughters, running through the Nation’s Capital, practicing  yoga or Pilates, or planning her next travel adventure.
