Cathy is responsible for Marketing and Promotions at Changemaker Education. She holds a B.A. in Anthropology and Fine Arts from William Smith College and an M.Ed. from Lesley University. Her career began in the classroom, where she taught in public schools in Massachusetts and later, Portsmouth, NH. At that time, she also consulted for Tufts University’s Center for Applied Child Development, educating colleagues on research-based reading and writing teaching practices. In 2009, Cathy’s career shifted back toward her second passion, art ; she made a career transition to graphic design and marketing and ran a freelance practice until 2019. In this role at CISE since 2017, Cathy allows her to blend her two passions.
