Cat hails from Pittsburg, Pennsylvania and holds a Bachelor’s in Strategic Communications with minors in Creative and Professional Writing. Prior to her current role as Academic Support Coordinator, Cat discovered the great outdoors by thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. This adventure drove a commitment to living in and enjoying our natural surroundings. Cat then worked for two years as a wilderness therapy guide. She is now pursuing her Master’s in Social Work. When asked what she likes about her role at Black Mountain Academy, Cat states, “I like the opportunity to help students during the school day as I identify with not enjoying school. I like helping facilitate their growth and mindset.” When Cat is not at work, you can find her backpacking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and playing card games!
