About Catherine

An accomplished and award-winning business leader and communications executive with over three decades of experience in the areas of business and brand strategy and leadership; reputation management; innovation; internal and external communications; and crisis management.

My career began almost thirty years ago upon initial completion of post-graduate studies (English, Psychology & Corporate Communications). In the earliest years, I held the position of Manager, Communications, at Saint Elizabeth Health Care (now SE Health), followed by that of Director, Communications and Creative Services at what is now Michael Garron Hospital. I also enjoyed working with Hill & Knowlton Canada, teaching marketing communications at Toronto’s Centennial College, serving in a leadership position at ParticipACTION, and as Executive Director for a national charitable organization.

This year (2023), marks 25 Years in Business. Thank you for choosing us!

Decades of business experience, along with additional education in human psychology, executive leadership and coaching, and risk management and tolerance, enable me provide leadership, mentorship, and coaching services to professionals and leaders at all stages of their careers, as well as to various boards.

I am a frequent lecturer, keynote speaker, and presenter at universities and conferences related to my areas of expertise, and have researched, authored, and co-authored a number of published works.

In addition to my work, I am the proud mother of two adult daughters and enjoy many active pursuits, time with family and friends, and travel. I also lend my time, expertise, and support to a number of causes including animal welfare, food insecurity, and human rights issues.
