Cathy joined the staff at the Community Foundation in the fall of 2017. As Administrative Assistant, she provides support to the rest of the staff to help keep things rolling smoothly. Cathy’s the first friendly face you’ll see when you come through our door and she looks forward to welcoming you!
Although comparatively new to the Foundation, she is not new to the community. Cathy, her husband, and their young family moved to Grand Rapids over 30 years ago from Maine to purchase and manage Itasca Greenhouse, Inc. in Cohasset. In addition to assisting with the day-to-day management and administration of the greenhouse, Cathy was active in the community as a soccer mom, Volunteer Coordinator at Murphy Elementary School and assisted with the Boy Scouts for their three sons. She obtained her BS degree in Communication Disorders from the University of New Hampshire and her MA in Audiology from the University of Connecticut. Cathy lives in Arbo with her husband, where she enjoys long walks and gardening
