Project Management Services

Project Management Services: 
Katherine Nixon has years of experience in project management. She is open to contract work as a project manager – especially in financial project management, mergers, and software implementation.

Katherine’s specialties lie in two primary areas: 

  1. Mergers and acquisitions as a Transition Specialist, focusing on post-acquisition transitions of systems processes and teams, 

  2. Implementation of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software systems.  

Katherine has been training project management since teaching her first Project Management Professional (PMP©) prep Boot Camp back in 2013. Since then, she has trained over 800 participants in the US and Canada, and has since expanded to teach more than PMP© certification preparation.

Some of her more popular session topics include:

Meet The Founder

Katherine Nixon, CPA, CPC, PMP 
Owner and Founder

Katherine Nixon holds a BBA from Texas A&M University in Accounting. She is certified as a project management professional (PMP©), a public accountant (CPA), and a professional coach (CPC).

While still in college, Katherine began her career in public accounting. In 1990, she started her own firm providing business consulting and complex tax reporting as the cornerstones of her services. Today, her firm is known as SETFS

In 2007, Katherine began taking on project work, working on financial projects as the controller, assisting with post-acquisition transitions of systems, and aiding with enterprise resource planning. Meanwhile, SETFS was thriving! In 2010, they ranked 20th in the Aggie 100 by Mays Business School. The Aggie 100 annually honors the top 100 fastest growing Aggie-owned or led businesses in the world.

In 2013, after working in project management for a while, Katherine took her first Project Management Professional Boot Camp class. Less than a year later, she had passed the PMP© and was training others to take the PMP© as well. Before long, business was booming and Katherine expanded her repertoire, developing additional project management training, coaching, and leadership workshops
