About Cathie Levine | Executive Coaching

I help people unify purpose and ambition into one clear vision of success.

My work as a coach is rooted in the more than 15 years I spent overseeing communications strategy for high-profile leaders such as Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Peter Jennings and Diane Sawyer,

On Capitol Hill, as a campaign press secretary and Vice President of Communications at ABC News, I confronted, managed and resolved some of the most complicated situations, personalities and crises.

An ability to get to the heart of any matter sets me apart. My unique whole-person methodology is designed to provide actionable insights, spark personal growth, evolve behavior and raise awareness through direct and powerful feedback.

I have been pressure-tested professionally in ways few people have, and can help you maintain composure, equanimity and a clear head in the most challenging circumstances.

And I believe compassion is a daily practice that improves your life, and improves the life of the teams you lead, the business you run and the clients you serve.

I earned my coaching certification through the Columbia University Executive Coaching program and a degree in Political Science from the University of Michigan. I hold a range of professional certifications including the Nalanda Institute’s Compassion Meditation Teacher Training.
