Catherine lives in Bangor, Maine with her family. She gained her appreciation for food and cooking from her grandmother and learned most of her technical knowledge from watching the Food Network. When not in the kitchen, Catherine can be found outdoors attempting to grow vegetables (not always successfully), practicing yoga, and taking Capoeira classes in downtown Bangor. Catherine can also be found walking around town with her Guiding Eyes guide dog, Caleb.
It was while studying Secondary Education and English at the University of Maine at Farmington that Catherine discovered her love of writing. After earning her bachelor’s degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition from the University of Maine, she went on to earn her certification as a Dietetic Technician, Registered from the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Now, she is combining writing, food, nutrition, and activity to create a blog that helps her readers get ideas for staying active and eating well all year ‘round!
