Katie Heagerty ’87 Zazueta is the Director of Advancement at Downtown College Prep. Previously she was the owner of an integrated strategic marketing firm in San Jose, Hyper Relevance. Katie graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a BS in art history and business marketing.


She has been involved with marketing companies throughout her career. She was a founding partner of HyperRelevance and she has recently serviced clients such as Cisco Systems, Charles Schwab, The Irvine Company, The Tech Museum, and a variety of non-profit and pro-bono initiatives.

But more importantly, Notre Dame San Jose taught her what she needs to know for life, which has now come full-circle with her position as part of the Notre Dame High School Board of Directors.
