Kathleen Stetson, CEO and coach, helps many-hats-wearing people better understand themselves and the world around them.
A former opera singer and acoustical engineer, Kathleen made her career bringing people together at the intersection of arts, science, and business. She founded a funded arts/tech startup while getting her MBA at MIT and co-founded Hacking Arts – the world's first arts+tech festival and hackathon, now in its seventh year at the MIT Media Lab – before consulting for startups and arts institutions, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
The depression she experienced during and after her startup’s failure, coupled with a constant low-level migraine she has had since 2010, spurred her extensive research into wellness, meditation, and mindfulness. Since starting her coaching business in 2018, she has helped entrepreneurs and Renaissance people across the country rock their unique paths, work better with their colleagues, and feel more joy every day.
She holds a BA from Harvard, an MM from NEC, an MS from RPI, and an MBA from MIT Sloan.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
