Throughout her life, Cat has been an academic and involved in sports. Cat has always been interested in leadership and intrigued by how emotions influence learning and performance. Cat majored in psychology at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio where she is an active volunteer. She earned her Master of Elementary Education from Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, has taught elementary school in public, private, and charter schools, and established a Gifted and Talented program in a charter school.

During Business School at Cornell University’s Johnson School, Cat worked for Cornell Outdoor Education’s Teambuilding Program. In the classroom and on the ropes course, Cat realized how perfectionism and anxiety influence performance. Now Cat specializes in counseling adults and children in sports and high stress situations.

Cat likes to downhill ski, do yoga, play tennis, and run on the beach or in the woods.
