As Senior Director at SecondMuse, Katey leads the New York City Hub which has focused on supporting and growing hardware, manufacturing and climate tech innovation communities.
Katey specializes in program design and setup. She pioneered SecondMuse’s Needfinding Framework for Internet Freedom, a product which is utilized in the first phase of program development. Previously, Katey launched and led the Futureworks NYC program in collaboration with New York City Economic Development Corporation. She also led several ecosystem development programs such as M-Corps and Venture for Climate Tech.

In March 2020, when NYC became the global epicenter of the Coronavirus pandemic, Katey galvanized her manufacturing and supply chain network to respond to the PPE supply chain crisis. The network successfully distributed more than 1 million face masks, shields, and more to healthcare facilities in the city.
Katey is a thoughtful, highly skilled, and ingenious ecosystem thinker.
