Co-Owner, Los Angeles Sparks
A season seat holder since the team’s inception in 1997, Kathy Goodman acquired the Los Angeles Sparks after ten seasons as a loyal and dedicated fan. A regular at Sparks games and WNBA events, Goodman and co-owner Carla Christofferson created a vision of community and family for her favorite professional sports team and since purchasing the team, has seen that vision through. Currently, Goodman teaches high school English and Social Studies at HighTechHigh-LA, an LAUSD-dependent charter school in the San Fernando Valley, recently named a California Distinguished School.
For five years, Goodman served as President of West Coast Operations for Intermedia Films, an independent motion picture production and finance company which she helped found in 1996. During her tenure at Intermedia, the company produced and financed more than 25 feature films, including “Sliding Doors,” “Hilary and Jackie” and “The Wedding Planner,” and went public on the German Niue Market in 2000.
Prior to her experience at Intermedia, Goodman was a partner at the law firm of Katten Muchin Zavis and Weitzman, where she specialized in representing entertainment financiers and distributors.
Goodman is a member of the Board of Directors of Women’s Care Cottage, an organization that helps move women and children off the streets permanently and succeed independently in their homes, schools, communities and workplaces.
Goodman is a graduate of Harvard University and the University of Chicago Law School. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
