Cathy has worked with youth for over 18 years, with a focus on helping develop the next generation of leaders. She has a BA in Education and began her career teaching in inner-city Minneapolis. Her experience there sparked her passion for the next generation. After developing a successful business that taught her hands on about leadership and encouraging others to succeed, she worked for the international educational organization, Up with People. She then worked with the Tommy Spaulding Leadership Institute where she planned and coordinated youth programs and corporate leadership retreats.
Cathy would say that at this stage of life her passion and skills have intersected as she gets to work with future leaders on her staff and students and that there is nothing better! She is eager to bring it to Tucson and is excited to see how we can change the next generation of youth!
