Cathie has recently transitioned out of serving on the leadership team of NextLEVEL Leadership and continues to facilitate leadership development for women nationally and internationally, most recently at World Vision, and in Ghana, West Africa. Cathie has been involved in fundraising and serving on non-profit boards both in the local community and the GTA for over a decade. Her strengths are creating contexts for and facilitating collaborative conversations, consulting in change management, fierce conversations, power, team, and systems thinking, teaching at women’s groups and retreats, fundraising, and large and small-scale event planning.
In 2006 Cathie co-chaired the Just Give Me Jesus Revival that saw thousands of women fill the Air Canada Centre with Anne Graham Lotz. She has produced large scale creative arts events and is excited about the convergence of leadership and the arts.
Cathie is active in her community through her work on the board of directors of HomeSuiteHope. Cathie has recently created the ACTS Initiative – a coalition of local faith, political and social service leaders. ACTS encourages gathering together to discuss and act on strategies that transform the community and address issues of poverty and homelessness. Cathie is a trained musician, active in the worship life of her church and is currently completing her Masters in Leadership and Management.
Her passion is authentic living from the core – and she encourages both women and men to find their rhythm in both life and leadership. Through coaching and mentoring she desires to impart life principles as well as focus on spiritual disciplines as the foundation for all growth.
