Catherine has also provided strategic advice, coaching and training to the following organizations.

Working with Catherine has been transformational in our journey toward disability inclusion. She is a trusted advisor and thought partner who is creative, strategic, and highly-skilled. From providing advice and counsel to creating resources to designing and delivering workshops and presentations to building systems to connecting dots and building relationships with the disability community, Catherine does it all. I have no doubt that the progress we’ve made over the last two years could not have been made without her.

Noorain Khan, Director, Ford Foundation

Catherine is always seeking additional information to inform her work and the work of others.  She is very detailed oriented, an excellent writer and an amazing team player.  She is able to work with people across institutions and is highly regarded in the non-profit sector both with disabled peoples organizations and NGOs.  She is a thinker, a collaborator and a visionary.  

Judy Heumann, civil rights activist

Catherine is a systems thinker with a great attention to detail who has an acute ability to identify how foundation staff can build support for new, ways of thinking and working, and how to sequence change to ensure that everyone feels a part of the process and invested in the results. And, put simply—she gets things done.
