In Cathy’s perfect world, there would be a huge cross country ski center located 10 minutes outside of Durham.  On a perfect day, it would be 20 degrees with over 80k of perfectly groomed ski trails and all the time in the world to ski them.  She is a goofball who sings made up songs to her animals and anyone else who happens to be around and enjoys spontaneous foolishness.  She has worked a commercial fishing job in Alaska each summer since she was 16 and built her own house.  She works hard, plays hard, and is committed to living with purpose and integrity… and if she could just figure out which pocket she left the keys in and where she left her sunglasses… she’d be all set.
