Kathryn Linehan brings over twenty years of experience in the fields of film, wellness, education and finance to the Board of Advisors of Creative Projects Group®. Her business training was with Mellon Bank in Wealth Management, Wells Fargo's Commercial Bank, and in sales management with Xerox. In establishing Mellon Bank within the film, television, and music industries, she became a trusted advisor to entertainment industry executives and talent.

In her affiliation with Pepperdine University over the past decade, Kathryn has created hundreds of film screenings and discussions with artists who elevate and provoke new ways of seeing. She also collaborates with numerous thought leaders who reflect upon the impact of these stories on culture. As a producer, Linehan's projects include, Remand, narrated by Angela Bassett, which brought a story of social justice in Uganda to light; as well as the short film, Children of Afghanistan, a compelling non-narrative film that brought deeper awareness of the Afghan people's dire conditions prior to 9/11 and was featured in the LA Times as one of the most compelling stories of the Sundance festival.
As a health and fitness innovator, Kathryn teaches FORM®, a class she created to bring forth whole body health through movement meditation. She works with medical professionals and their clients at the Slow FORM fitness studios in Malibu and has contributed to research that measures the effects of the FORM practice on increasing empathy in the college-age populations.
