My work  

Hi, there! I’m Kat Koh: career coach for creatives and writer living in San Francisco.

I help creatives get clear on what’s next and get to work, so they can wake up and think, “I can’t believe I get to do this work”.

What you and I both know

A lukewarm career holds you back from fully loving your life. Of course it does, if you spend 40+ hours/week feeling tired and uninspired. 

Money can only buy so much.

A job is not just a job. Meaningful work is key to a fulfilling life. 

Creativity is a mind-body-spirit affair.

The "on paper" stuff

Back in the day, I held curatorial positions at:
San Jose Museum of Art
U.S. Pavilion, 2012 Venice International Architecture Biennale
Brooklyn Museum

I got my MA in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and dropped out of the Ph.D. program. 

I worked for Seth Godin and completed his acclaimed altMBA program. 

My coach training program is International Coach Federation (ICF) accredited, and one of the most rigorous out there—my process is distinctly effective for today’s creatives. 

How I can help you

I help creative people like you get clarity and go from where you are → where you want to be in career and life, with consistency, clarity, and ease.

 No, thanks

These are 100% great places to be, but working with me is not for you if: 

You just want advice on resume, applying to jobs, interviews.
You're content with your career. 
You don't think of yourself as a creative person.
You believe "a job's a job"—put in the hours, get paid, repeat. 
You don’t want change (change = a journey + stress). 

Yes, please

We might work well together if:

You're ready to step up and move forward. 
You're ready to do great work that stands out. 

It’s time to stop feeling limited, overwhelmed, and distracted.
You want something you've never had, so you’re willing do something you've never done.
