Why I Love Hope
Cathy enjoys the 35 different faculty members that she supports and the different students she meets in each department. She feels that each office has its own personality, so each day is different. She also enjoys the interaction that she has with other departments, offices and employees/friends on Hope’s campus.
Outside the College
Cathy enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren (which is the best), as well as spending time at the beach and knitting baby blankets and large afghan blankets.
