Cathy

I am a transplanted prairie girl — I moved to the West Coast more than 30 years ago, where I fell in love with the ocean at first sight! One of my greatest joys is walking along the beach, listening to the waves break — a sound that never fails to soothe and inspire me. I live in Metro Vancouver with my husband and our dog, Frankie. Our two grown daughters live close enough that we hardly feel like “empty-nesters.”

I am a media and marketing coordinator — a career that combines two of my passions, writing and graphic design. I love watching BBC mysteries and superhero/suspense movies (Hello, Netflix!) When I’m not trying to figure out my superpower you can find me immersed in a book (ask me what I’m reading now), writing (read all my blogs post below), or attempting to capture the perfect shot of my dog, Frankie (she’s adorable!). Check out her Instagram page.

My goal for the Fabulous Boomer Sisters is to highlight and support the reinvention of “old age” and create a space to celebrate the strengths, vitality and worth of every woman, especially those who are fifty-plus.
