And she has helped data users of all levels—from analysts to executives—get answers they need from their data. She enjoys leading her team of engineers to align and exceed expectations.
Katie currently serves as the Analytic Director and Engagement Lead for Health Catalyst, an organization igniting change by focusing on outcomes improvement with the ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes and lives.

Prior to joining Health Catalyst, Katie held positions at Health Care Dataworks, NYU Medical Center, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, and Cardinal Health. She started her healthcare IT career the day after she graduated from The Ohio State University School of Allied Medicine with a BS degree that was the first of its kind – Health Management – a degree that blended business, technology, finance with healthcare.
She is an avid advocate for women and personal finance and has coached numerous women in her community and beyond to understand their finances, become financially free of debt, and believe in their self-worth.
