Katherine has been working in senior positions for the past eight years, in both the not-for-profit and commercial sectors. Before joining Charisma, Katherine was the Development Manager for The Guildhall Trust, an arts charity dedicated to engaging young people in music. She was previously a Tour Manager for an international travel company specialising in heritage educational tours and is the former Area Sales Manager for the UK’s largest, independent art gallery group.

In all of these roles, people have been at the core. From clients and stakeholders to employees, Katherine has been at the heart of the organisation addressing their business needs, and introducing new strategies to diversify income streams, through fundraising, retail and event development.

In her spare time, Katherine enjoys antiquing, visiting historic houses, pretending to be a wine expert and spending time with her husband and cat.
