Cathy became a director in July 2011. Cathy has been involved with the Asante Centre many years before becoming a director. Along with her husband she has been involved with the Ministry of Children and Family Development for over 25 years now as a foster parent to children who need love and direction. She definitely has an understanding of issues of children who live with FASD. Throughout their years they have welcomed many boys and girls, babies and teens into their home who have FASD, and watched them grow into beautiful people. Some of these children have become clients of the Asante Centre. She still supports many as they strive to be independent, as children and adults with FASD need encouragement and hands on help. Cathy also is self employed, runs her business in Maple Ridge, and has a diploma in Early Childhood Education.
