Writer

Catherine writes at opposing ends of the spectrum–at one end, she brightens lives with her inspirational non-fiction; at the other, she terrifies with her short horror and supernatural tales.

She began writing at age 3 and discovered the editing bug shortly after turning 4, when she began peppering her mother with queries as to why brand names–such as Krispy Kreme–would intentionally misspell common words.

In corporate realms, Catherine is recognized for her writing in health-care, business and ‘big data’ sectors, and has written for Hospital News, Healthy Directions magazine, the Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute of Ontario, Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, Dextro Analytics and the Certified General Accountants of Ontario.

Today, she blogs for Barrie Olive Oil Co., a gig that combines some of her favorite things–delicious food, hearty conversation, healthy living and robust community involvement.

Some publications include:
