Valer Leadership

Cathy Kim


Cathy Kim is Valer’s COO and is fanatically dedicated to the success of Valer’s clients. It is her fond memories of working in her father’s medical practice and the purposeful joy of providing the very best care that brought her back to the healthcare industry.  

She brings a decade’s worth of startup experience with companies such as Ammonia and Arzon Solar LLC, where she focused on business development and operations. Before Cathy was in operations, she practiced law. She was a Senior Associate at Winston & Strawn, LLP and an Associate at Allen Matkins Leck Gamble & Mallory. 

Cathy received her bachelor’s degree in history from Yale University, her JD from the University of California Hastings College of Law, and her MBA from the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business. 

She is an avid skier, surfer and golfer, but her hidden talent is her karaoke chops.
