Kathy Vizas

Chief Strategy Officer/Co-Founder
Kathy Vizas co-founded TogetHER with Celina Schocken in 2017. As a Founding Member of the Maverick Collective, Ms. Vizas worked in India to develop a PSI-led cervical cancer screening program. While pleased to be supporting women in India, Ms. Vizas felt frustrated by the extremely low levels of support she saw globally for the fight against cervical cancer and felt motivated to examine the root problems – a lack of funding and knowledge about the disease. And ultimately, TogetHER was born. Prior to her work as an advocate for global health, Ms. Vizas practiced law for more than 20 years in law firms and corporations. She serves on the San Francisco Committee of Human Rights Watch, the Board of the Human Trafficking Legal Center, and the Board of Trustees at Bucknell University. She also recently completed a 6-year term as Board Chair for Spring Impact, Inc., which works to support social sector organizations to scale their impact.
