Katie has executed business development, strategic planning, and fundraising initiatives across a wide variety of investment strategies since joining the industry in 2003. At Kairos, she will be responsible for fundraising and servicing our investors, and will immediately launch her strategy and activities as they relate to our current Fund III.
Before joining Kairos, she led the Investor Relations team for PFM Health Sciences, a long/short equity hedge fund, based in San Francisco. Prior to that, she was an Associate Director on the institutional client services team at Artisan Partners, with responsibility for marketing and client support for the Artisan High Income Strategy. She also was a Vice President of client service at Pacific View Asset Management, where she developed the firm brand and led marketing initiatives for a new asset management company representing three hedge fund strategies and a venture capital team. Earlier in her career, Katie worked as a business development professional for TeamCo Advisers and a Manager in investor relations at Criterion Capital Management. She holds a Bachelor’s degree from Indiana University.
Outside of work, Katie volunteers as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) to help children who have experienced abuse or neglect be safe, have a permanent home, and have the opportunity to thrive. She has a curious nature and a passion for travel that began with her first overseas plane ride at the age of three. Katie has a vast array of interests; however, she is sure to see live performance art, take a cooking class, volunteer for a local charity, and challenge herself physically at each destination on her itinerary.
