Cathy was born in Toronto, Canada to her parents who emigrated from Europe. She has been with the Dream Team for six years. Recovery has been a long process and she credits George Herman House, a group home for young women, as central to her recovery. She currently lives in supportive housing and has been volunteering at a nursing home for seven years. Her future plans include making music, documentaries, and attending University of Toronto for Television and radio. She has a love for music and all things creative and artistic. Two of her favourite inspirational quotes are: “The birds don’t worry about where their food will come from tomorrow” (Ma) and “Even if it’s cloudy, the sun is still shining behind the clouds” (Yogi Bhajan).
