Interestingly enough, when she and her family arrived in Quebec in 2013, Cathy regularly visited the Éducaloi website, which served as a valuable resource to help her better understand the law and its impact on everyday life. Several years later, joining the organization became an obvious choice, notably to help make legal information more accessible and understandable.
Trilingual, creative and strategic, she developed an expertise in business management, events and communications around the world. This rather unusual career path has enriched her with new discoveries and encounters. Since then, she has put her experience and MBA to good use for the causes that inspire her. For over eight years, she worked for an international non-governmental organization promoting children’s rights, and is currently a member of the Conseil des Lavalloises.
