Author, leadership coach, and diversity consultant
Kathy brings more than two decades of leadership development and consulting work with non-profit organizations and churches. Kathy helps individual leaders, teams, and organizations bring alignment between values and actions.
Fundraising was a personal experience as Kathy spent more than two decades raising her personal salary with a national parachurch organization. Kathy oversaw multiethnic training and ministry development for staff and students in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin as well as spending 10 of those years as the campus staff for the Asian American InterVarsity chapter and then as the area director overseeing undergraduate ministry to more than 300 students at Northwestern University, Evanston, IL.
Kathy serves as the board secretary for Evangelicals for Social Action and has served on the board of Sojourners. Both opportunities continue to shape her commitment to see equitable funding models developed for organizations to better support both their staff and overall goals.
Kathy is the author of Raise Your Voice: Why We Stay Silent and How to Speak Up (IVP, 2018) and a contributing editor for Sojourners magazine. She co-authored More Than Serving Tea (IVP, 2006) – a one-of-a-kind book exploring faith, gender, culture, and ethnic identity from the distinct perspective of Asian American Christian women and has spoken at countless conferences and universities including Eastern University, Moody Bible Institute, North Park Theological Seminary, Wheaton College, Q: Women & Calling, National Youth Workers Conference and the Wild Goose Festival. Kathy partners with other bloggers, pastors, and Christian leaders to highlight and move the conversation forward on issues of race, ethnicity, and gender within the Church.
