Dr. Katie Spencer joined WMM because of her strong belief that women in community embracing their position of influence, and investing in women and girls, will create the change the world needs. She is proud to represent the Spencer Family Fund, one of her family’s impact vehicles, within WMM.
Katie founded and is CEO of Northbound Consulting, a boutique coaching and consulting firm working with high-net-wealth families and businesses. This followed earlier career pursuits in humanitarian aid work, and working as a trauma-focused clinical psychologist. From her personal and professional experience, Katie saw that she could elevate her own impact in the world by helping individuals, families, organizations, and women in particular step into their full leadership potential and live well with wealth. Katie’s firm offers leadership & executive coaching; multigenerational engagement & transition strategy; and peer groups for women of influence stepping into new life chapters.
Participating in groups of women who are inspired to make the world a better place gives Katie energy, and WMM could not be better aligned with her values. Katie’s horse Louie is another significant source of energy, as is bringing equine-facilitated learning to the world. Her six- and three-year-old children are certainly her greatest joy; even if they equally energize her and drain her of energy! She is married to Jeremy, a fellow humanitarian who turned to impact venture capital- with a preference for female founders. The four of them are often found hiking (more like nature walks at the moment), fly fishing, hosting meals with friends on their back deck, or at the horse barn.
Katie’s number one value is connection.
