"When you expand people's perception of what is possible, you enable them to think bolder, dream bigger, and achieve more.

about me

Everyone has a story and everyone has goals in life. What's your's? I would love to hear more! 

get started now

i'm ready to jump in

I'm an education & career strategist with extensive experience and passion for undergraduate and graduate college admissions. I have coached over 200+people with the college admissions and financial aid processes. My work has taken me to places including Texas, Massachusetts and California.

Feeling ready to make major moves, I decided to take a step back from working full-time to dedicate my time and energy into pursuing a graduate education. This ultimately led me to The Pennsylvania State University where I obtained my M.Ed in Education with a specialization in Higher Education.  

I've recently ventured out into the world of tech! How? I utilized my network to help educate me on the field, leaned in on my transferable skills and built up my confidence to transition into a new field. Sometimes things are beyond your control which can cause a shift in your career. For me, the pandemic! But, if you're willing to step out on faith and trust yourself, you can elevate yourself to any level possible! 

When I'm not working you can find me binge-watching my favorite shows on Netflix and Hulu, trying out new, delicious recipes or enjoying the beautiful weather in NC! Have questions any questions for me? Feel free to shoot me a quick email as I'd be more than happy to hear from ya! 

Meet Catherine

fun facts about me

Let's Get Personal!!

When I was 18, I dreamed of one day living in California. Years later, that dream came true when I made San Francisco my new home! 

I love adventure and once went zipligning in Niagara Falls  

Issa Rae and Arlan Hamilton are my SHEroe's! 

I wrote and performed my first-ever, one-woman show on stage in San Francisco. Was I nervous -- yup! But it was SO much fun!

I'm ready!

So what are you waiting for?

the time is now

I know change can be difficult, I've been in your shoes. But, I've never allowed fear, doubt or the thought of stepping outside of my comfort zone hold me back in the pursuit of my goals. I wouldn't be here today without the support of my mentors and coaches. I'm ready to give you the support that you're seeking! 
Yes, the journey may be tough but you won't be there alone! Are you ready?
