Kat Horne


Kat's passion for speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves lead to an 8-year role with the Nova Scotia SPCA where she served on the board of directors and was elected Vice President. During this tenure, she collaborated with an amazing team of volunteer professionals to turn the organization from struggling-to-survive to becoming a 4-star internationally recognized charity (source: Charity Intelligence Canada). In 2018, Kat completed a two-year term on the Steering Committee of an LGBT club where she is most proud of her work on the Diversity Committee. As a breast cancer survivor, Kat has learned the value of creating the life you want. With more than 30 years of corporate experience, Kat brings to us her diverse background combined with her passion for change and a desire to walk the road less traveled. Her focus on personal growth, yoga, cycling, and anything involving water and a paddle have been instrumental in this journey.
