Business structures flourish best when innovative leadership intersects with solicitous intention. Uniquely embodying this ethic is the compassionate professional, Kathy White.


Kathy White is an International Best Selling author, speaker, mentor, and the CEO and founder of Kathy White Coaching, a personal development coaching business. Having spent several years of reputable leadership as a managerial and accounting professional, Kathy brings dynamic and methodical reliability to the growing world of entrepreneurial hopefuls. Leaving behind a role as the Accounts Payable Manager at Ultradent from 2014 to 2021, she is living proof that success is not linear - with calculated and assessed risk-taking, entrepreneurs can expect to transform their world and stars.


Her Mantra is clear: “If you believe enough, you can change your stars.” Kathy combines a successful career with high regard for education, achievement, and community service. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Utah and an Associate of Science in Business from Salt Lake Community College. As a certified coach with the Napoleon Hill Institute and the 2024 Board Chair for the Murray Chamber of Commerce, Kathy is dedicated to fostering growth and collaboration within her community.

As a profound believer in the power of philanthropic volunteerism, Kathy has participated in several service-based efforts, such as “The Dirty Dash” and TEDxSLC. Though her sincere heart for excellence has afforded her many accolades, including featured photography published in Ultradent’s calendar in 2013 and 2016, Kathy is often sobered by her tenacity in overcoming life’s various obstacles. She has had to navigate most of her victories while being a divorced single mom, battling a jaw tumor and breast cancer, each diagnosed within two weeks of each other in 2014.


Standing as one inclined to succeed against all odds, Kathy understands the power of determination when belief and commitment are applied to one’s dream. She often pulls on this internal resource while coaching others on their path. When Kathy is not out changing the world through the fabric of innovative entrepreneurship, she enjoys traveling, adventure, and watching the beauty of the mountainous outdoors. Kathy White. Leader. Innovator. Humanitarian.
