All too often people are defined by what they do rather than who they are. What makes Catherine interesting has more to do with who she is than what she does. She is often described as an old soul. Wise beyond her years, she has a silent strength that most people can only dream of having. After having battled her own inner demons at an early age, she has risen above to become an example to her friends and family of the power of sheer will and tenacity. She has not let herself be defined by these early experiences and is the first to lend a sympathetic ear. But don’t mistake this for passivity, she is one fiesty lady! As a new mother, she exudes a serene happiness in the role she was meant to play.
