Welcome, I'm Cathy!
I offer guidance and support to organizations, leaders, and teams. I am a consultant, a coach, an educator, a facilitator, a curriculum designer, and more! I strive to preserve and enhance the welfare of our humanity through my work. My experiences and talents allow me to model and inspire others to be effective leaders within organizations and communities that value and promote interconnectedness, fellowship, social equity and justice.
I specialize in social justice education, organizational development, leadership coaching, retreat design and facilitation. I am skilled in utilizing a variety of participatory methods that engage multiple intelligences.
When I am not facilitating a retreat or working one-on-one with a client, I'm probably spoiling my dogs, enjoying my succulent garden, or listening to a favorite podcast.
Cathy is a thoughtful coach, skilled facilitator,
and graceful guide.
Are you interested in strengthening your leadership or management skills, but taking a class or reading a book just doesn’t suffice? Let me support you in designing and implementing personal change to strengthen your leadership. Together, we will understand your strengths, reflect on the dynamics of your work environment, and design action steps that meet your goals. As you implement your action plan, I’ll serve as a sounding board, cheerleader, and coach to guide you toward your full potential.
Social Justice Education
Looking for ways to deepen the knowledge and skills necessary for creating a more diverse and inclusive world? I’ll design a training curriculum tailored to your groups’ goals that deepens cultural self-awareness and develops everyone's ability to use an equity lens. I'll support you to analyze and respond to situations thoughtfully, and provide opportunities to strengthen your team's sense of belonging. Our collaborative work will enhance everyone's wellbeing, and practice intergroup communication skills.
Your vision and mission matter! Show them some love. Using a collaborative, participant- centered process, I’ll guide you and your stakeholders in re-energizing or creating a vision, mission, strategic directions, goals and a plan for implementation. I will help include the voices of all of your stakeholders and turn long-range goals into every day actions.
Cathy has the unique ability to capture one’s vision and ground it into tangible reality by clarifying strategic goals and working closely on a timeline that contributes a strong momentum toward one’s professional goals. Right away she helped me identify my strengths as a leader and a professional, and she captured this in copy writing that I used on my website and in other professional written materials that have helped me advance both my career and status. Thank you, Cathy!
