The pioneering Friendship Class gaining national media attention was first piloted at USC before the pandemic and is now taking flight to colleges across the U.S.!
In the aftermath of Covid and the harrowing CDC report on teen mental health, we're ready to partner with you to meet students' bedrock need for belonging.
My passion is to help us disrupt loneliness + create lifestyles of belonging. (Here's my wild journey into the work.) I partner with you to create personalized experiences that transform your culture at the soil level. Let's figure out your next steps on campus, in your organization, or with your initiative.
You Belong™ Services are designed for:
Whether you're addressing loneliness or looking to enhance + scale your relational culture in a post-covid landscape, we're here for it all.
I'd be thrilled to join you in your media segment, lecture on your campus, keynote your org's event or facilitate strategy meetings with your team.
I'll support you in leading with authenticity as you make touch decisions about cultivating belonging organizationally. Whether you're a professional or recent grad, I provide Mentoring + Internship opportunities that we co-design together to meet you where you're at.

"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
