Cathy Carroll grew up in a family business and enjoyed a 20-year corporate career before leading her father's manufacturing business.  It was there that she learned how unique leadership is in a family business. Legacy Onward is dedicated to helping leaders in family businesses thrive.


Prior to founding Legacy Onward, Inc., Cathy led Pro Equine Group as President and COO. She has also held executive positions at United Airlines and Sabre, and she started her career as an actuary at Hewitt Associates. She holds an MBA from the University of Chicago, a BA from Boston College, and she earned her Certificate in Leadership Coaching and her Certificate in Executive Facilitation at Georgetown University.  She maintains a PCC (Professional Certified Coach) credential through the International Coaching Federation.



Cathy helped me go from someone who did not believe in executive coaching to someone who would recommend it to others.

Cathy was excellent overall.  She helped me overcome some weaknesses that I now claim as strengths. She offered a non-biased viewpoint in many challenging situations and continually challenged me to operate outside my comfort zone.

Cathy’s deep knowledge of the dynamics of family run businesses, coupled with her enormous empathetic heart are a lifesaver.  Coaching allowed me to gain a deeper and more meaningful understanding, not only of my business, but of myself and my own family’s deep seated triggers and its effects on the business. I have new perspectives, tools and ways lead, but more importantly, I feel like a more whole and loving human being to myself and my children because of her. I am forever grateful.”

I've used coaches throughout my career, and by far, Cathy was the most sophisticated while being the most practical of the coaches I've engaged.  She literally changed my entire thinking about the business - and created a new era of renewed energy and deep satisfaction with my calling to serve entrepreneurial leaders with our marketing services."
