Fun Facts about Cat:

What is the top item on your bucket list?
Visiting Switzerland!

Who is your favorite musical artist or genre?
I used to absolutely LOVE Madonna in the 80s, but as I’ve gotten older, I do not have a favorite artist or genre! I love ALL music!

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
The superpower I’d want would be to help level any/all playing fields so that everyone can receive what they need without having to sacrifice, beg, or compete to get it.

What is your favorite food?
My number one has always been steak (pink in the middle!) but honestly, anything healthy.

What is your favorite book and movie? Why?
My favorite books were the Harry Potter books (I absolutely love getting out of my logical brain and into a little magic!) My favorite movie is The Descent, given the main character perseveres at all odds.

What do you like most about working for CFSA?
I really enjoy getting to use my accounting skills/passion for good in our community!
