She loves helping students to grow and become the confident, connected human beings they always wanted to be.
Catherine loves going hiking in LA and seeing the edges where nature and civilization merge. You don’t have to live in a narrow definition of who you are. You can be both a scientist and an artist. Being fully human is to be a composite of all life experiences. Embrace every success and every chance to try again, you learn from it all.
