Headshot: Kathy BuiKathy shares that she “stumbled into Finance after earning a Master’s in Education from the University of Maryland.” Her focus was on Minority and Urban Education. Growing up with two refugee immigrant parents who spoke very little English, she knew she wanted to work with underserved populations. Her first job out of grad school was a Program Administrator at a crisis bed in Prince George’s County, Maryland. After that, she transitioned to a small non-profit in Silver Spring, MD and fell in love with finance and operations. She worked there for 6 years before coming to IEL, where she has now worked for six years.

Outside of IEL, Kathy coached CrossFit as a Level 2 Trainer for 5 years. After having a baby, she stepped down from coaching, but continues to do CrossFit regularly. In her free time, she loves spending time with her family: husband, two kids, two cats, and a dog. “I’ve always believed, whether it’s health and fitness related, or any other area of life, that everyone has the ability to achieve their goals when given the right support, resources, and opportunities,” she says.
