Katherine obtained a BA in political science and economics from the University of Maryland and MS in International Development Studies from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. She serves as the Kentuck for Kids coordinator for the annual Kentuck Festival of the Arts in Tuscaloosa.
Originally the only employee of the appropriately named T.A. Lewis and Associates, today "the really good engineer who can talk" is now President and CEO of TALA Professional Services, an international technology and innovation firm with a global clientele. TALA's notable client roster includes Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), Honda, Mercedes-Benz USA International, City of Chattanooga, IBM Global Services, City of Tuscaloosa, Rosser International (USA Army base — Italy), The University of Alabama, and among many others.
An outspoken proponent of technomics (the power of technology to drive economic prosperity), Tim conceived and leads the Connected Community Program, currently improving cities across the United States. Connected Communities have potential to positively and profoundly impact entire communities. Most recently Tim has worked with museums on innovative ways to share their stories and helped communities to highlight their rich history and amazing cultures.
Tim's combination of capitalistic and altruistic values has made him a much sought after speaker, trainer and advisor in a variety of sectors. Distinguished honors he has received include the Blue-Chip Enterprise Initiative Award, Small Business Person of the Year, Minority Business Leadership Award and serving as a delegate to the 1995 White House Conference on Small Business. Additionally, Tim serves on the boards of Junior Achievement, Salvation Army, UAB Health System, UA Health Services Foundation, Birmingham Business Alliance, Tuscaloosa Civil Rights History Task Force, and Lawson State Community College Foundation.
