About Kathy
My husband and I founded and run 16 iconic fast food restaurants in Austin Texas (P. Terry's and Taco Ranch). We have two girls (7 and 10) and I was tired of all the obligatory gifts I felt compelled to buy and my friends felt compelled to give so I developed a social giving mobile app called inLieu. I launched it in March. It allows people make donations in honor of their friends as well as making donating fast, easy and social. I think we are all at a place where more meaningful giving is what we want, we just didn't have the tools. So my goal is to change the way people think about giving and have a bigger impact on the world.

Show up, work hard and be kind.

Words you live by/quotes you love

Show up, work hard and be kind.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

I'm a process/operational girl so when I see a problem I don't stop until I find a solution. I don't take No as an answer. I want to show people that we can make this world we live in a more compassionate and supportive place by encouraging people to make small acts of kindness everyday with simple social giving. We can make a huge impact if we all participate. So in lieu of all those things we don't need...

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Right now, everything is a challenge. I just created a technology company which is not my background so everything is new, but it's also exciting!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I feel like this group of women are at the same place in their life as I am. We are passionate, driven, hard working women who want to create a better world for our kids and at the same time not let go of our identity and what makes a great mamas. I believe we all want to raise our children to be independent, compassionate and resourceful -- Kids that are going to make this world a better place!
