Catherine has always had an interest in the natural world and is passionate about encouraging students to discover how they can make a positive impact. Over the last ten years, she has lived in Switzerland, Beijing and Shanghai, and with her three daughters all now attending school she is looking forward to working once again with secondary and IB students. While raising her family, she has maintained an interest in education and school life. In Beijing, in her role as Chairperson of the Parents’ Association, she devoted a lot of time to charity fundraising and strongly believed in involving students directly in these activities where they could see the impact of their efforts. More recently, Catherine has been developing her knowledge of sustainability and has been investigating ways to educate and engage students in activities that encourage them to be more environmentally friendly.
Catherine likes visiting new places and travelling with her family. She has always loved sport; watching, playing, teaching and now cheering on her girls! She plays netball in Shanghai and otherwise keeps fit running around after her busy children. Catherine also likes to try out new restaurants in Shanghai and spend time with friends.
