She is part of an assertive case management team composed of a probation officer, nurse, occupational therapist, psychiatrist, and income assistance worker, with the goal of reducing recidivism rates and reducing hospital admissions. She is person-centered, works from a harm reduction philosophy, and places emphasis on meeting people where they’re at. Catherine is passionate about social justice, mental health awareness, and the Downtown Eastside community. When Catherine isn’t working, she is connecting with nature, working out, and biking.
