They hold additional certification in Perinatal Grief and Loss (CC-PGL) and have completed trainings with both Canadian Perinatal Mental Health Trainings and Postpartum Support International.

She identifies as a queer femme birthing parent to two neurodiverse children, living with invisible disability.

Catherine is also an inter-arts and mixed media artist whose works have been exhibited across North America and published internationally.
