Cat is a Lead Mentor at AIM House and runs the Community Service Program. Cat also mentors manifest participants in the community. Cat was born in Washington D.C. and grew up in the northern Virginia area. Coming from a very diverse multi-cultural background, Cat has had the opportunity to approach life with an open-mind. Cat received a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology as well as a second Bachelor’s Degree in Women and Gender Studies from the University of Colorado Boulder.

Cat has experience working in a transitional housing shelter for families in need in Colorado as part of EFAA’s long-term assistance program. With the goal of moving families towards self-sufficiency and sustainability outside of the program, Cat worked on family cases that addressed the many factors that lead to homelessness. Cat enjoys working with people as young adults, at such a pivotal point in life, as they are finding lifelong passions and working towards self-discovery. Having experienced the power that serving others can have in the healing process, Cat particularly values the implementation of the Community Service Program at AIM House.

Cat is an avid hiker and camper, as well as a skater on a competitive roller derby league in Longmont. Cat firmly believes that body movement is our greatest tool for self-expression and release.
