Catherine joined the Connection Support team in April 2022.

Catherine spent more than 15 years working in the international education sector, developing partnerships and overseeing student recruitment in many countries around the world, including China, Japan, Kazakhstan and Russia. She ran her own consultancy for a number of years.

She moved to the voluntary sector in 2019 and has been hooked ever since. She is a passionate believer in the power of volunteering and has been involved in several volunteer programmes over the years, including teaching in Nepal, working alongside ex-offenders for Emmaus in France and helping with language learning at secondary schools in the UK. Catherine is currently studying for an MSc in Charity Marketing and Fundraising at the Centre for Charity Effectiveness, Bayes Business School, University of London.

Catherine is looking forward to engaging with supporters, developing partnerships with local organisations and helping Connection Support raise vital funds to ensure we can continue to support local people in the years to come.
