My passion is to help us create lifestyles of belonging. I work across industries and org sizes (local cafes to the department of defense) at any stage of project development. I do a combination of speaking, advising, developing pilot projects, and coaching managers, executives and caregivers.
CLICK + SPARK (Higher Ed)
I teach CLICK and SPARK as a class and design lab at USC and license them to other institutes of higher education. I created CLICK™, "The Everybody Connection Method," through 20 years of study and 10,000+ conversations in the trenches of LA neighborhoods being friends with people from every walk of life.
WHY DO I DO THIS?
Because I struggled through two decades of chronic loneliness, know how to get out, and know how much is possible. (Here's my story!) But also because meaningful connection is the #1 predictor of wellbeing. As a global society in an age of unprecedented burnout, polarization + isolation, we must find our way home to each other.
Whether for personal, professional or humanitarian reasons, I'd love to be with you to create belonging where you already are. We are wired to meaningfully connect + the process can be fun.
"Cat has an uncanny ability to connect with systems in a way that humanizes them."
- Sam C., Executive Director, Level Ground
"What Cat is doing here can serve as the basis for renewed democracy."
- Jim B., Senior Associate Dean, USC
"Cat's understanding of people and systems runs deep. Beyond this, she brings to her work a faith in humanity and a commitment to fun, workable solutions that make her a joy to work with. She helped me -- a solitary writer, emphasis on solitary -- launch a successful workshop program. Nobody but Cat could make the work of drawing writers out of themselves so fun and so effortless."
- Ellie R., Writer, Founder, Write & Hike
"I've learned from Cat that community is synonymous with breathing. She has also attended several of my retreats, helping with ideas to create a magical experience out of the weekends. Cat not only has brilliant ideas, but she is a delight to be around."
- Jennifer D., Founder, Chapter One Workshop
