A Look Behind the Emerald Curtain

My name is Cathy. I’m 28 years old, I have a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design. I love photography, art, music, food, and I am a total fan-girl when it comes certain fandoms. Give me a Doctor Who, Captain America (any Marvel series, really) marathon any day and I will be happy.

Who doesn’t like food? Yes, we need it to live but for as long as I can remember I wanted to be a chef, and I’m always happy when I can roll up my sleeves and cook for friends, family and my loved ones.

I am extremely proud of my families heritage. I am Irish, Scottish, and a mix of countries which made up the old German Empire. I was a competitive Irish Step Dancer and made it all the way up to Preliminary Championship level of competition. I have a passion for learning about the history of Ireland and Scotland, from the people to the historic events to the music – which explains my love of the band Celtic Thunder.

My family heritage isn’t the only thing I am proud of. I love my parents and I am proud to say that without them I would not be the person I am today. I have an older brother who is my hero. He serves in the United States Coast Guard and I am proud of him everyday. My brother has a beautiful wife and an amazingly brilliant and handsome son. Now, as I said my brother is my hero – but he is not the only one. My grandparents have taught me so much in my life. While I am fortunate to still have my Nana with me, my Grandpa, Grandma and Pop-Pop have passed away, but they have taught me lessons that have intertwined together and that has played a big part of who I am today.

So that’s me, a strong, independent, woman who loves photography, art, music, food, family – you name it I probably have or will geek out over it.
