View Bio

After growing up in the greater Portland/Vancouver area Catherine was first introduced to the L’Arche Spokane community as a college volunteer. This encounter left a lasting impression and following grad school at WSU (Go Cougs!) Catherine felt called to return to L’Arche as a live-in assistant in Spokane. She has since enjoyed being active in the community in whatever way possible, most recently by joining the Board. Catherine currently works as a home health Dietitian and lives with her husband Shane and their cat in Cheney.
