I’ve always been a Creative.Creative in the big visions and big dreams way. Creative in the world of arts, worship, music, and conducting way.
And then God widened the tent pegs.
My Creative expanded into the entrepreneurial and corporate worlds of coaching, leadership development, and consulting. Facilitating clarity of purpose, mission and vision, I love to inspire others to get from here to there. All borne out of the lessons learned from my own circuitous journey from performance to purpose. Performance burnt me out. Purpose gave meaning and renewed energy..

Cathie is one of those people who naturally thinks “outside of the box”! She brings a unique perspective to the table and takes the ordinary to the extraordinary by applying her god-given energy and creative talents. She is able to take concepts and break them down into bite-sized pieces, which can then be practically applied.
