Guiding me to find my soul’s true DNA and talents encrypted in my blueprint, tools to turn life around. Not only for myself, but awakening a mission to pursue!

My life challenged me on learning so much through past achievements, struggles, trauma’s and joy’s, without forgetting there’s still so much still so much to explore, to enjoy, to learn and to share …

"Cathy is an amazing woman, an epic human being. She has learned how standing up feels like, how wiping the painful dust of experience from her shoulders, moving on, straight up, with a smile on her face. She is one person you would want to listen and follow, one of these very rare people who see things, most of the rest of us don’t. Cathy is what happens, when a beautiful mind meets a strong character meets intense experience meets fantastic style. Better.Buckle.Up."
