Katherine joined Tipping Point because she believes in a poverty-free Bay Area and that transformative educational experiences change a student and their family’s trajectory for generations. Katherine is a results-driven leader with over 15 years of experience leading large, complex organizations centered on academic and curricular development. Most recently, she led Presentation High School in San Jose as Principal, where she overhauled core infrastructure, implemented innovative new programs, and steered the organization through its most challenging times. Earlier in her career, she worked in management consulting and public policy. Katherine received her B.A. in Economics and Political Science from University of California, Davis, holds a M.A. in Education Administration from Santa Clara University, and a Certificate in School Management and Leadership from Harvard Business School Online.
When she’s not at work, Katherine enjoys running, sailing in the Bay, and before-bedtime dance parties with her kids.
