Cat was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and aside from short but exciting stints in Chicago and Japan, she has spent most of her life living in Western Washington. A BA in communications from Western Washington University and a long career in User Experience leadership have honed her skills as a listener and has made simplifying the complex almost second-nature. Those qualities, paired with an acute business sense, negotiating skills, and no-holds-barred dedication to her buyers make Cat a great agent that is truly a pleasure to work with. She believes the core of her job is finding nice houses for nice people, since every home buyer is a new neighbor to love here in greater Kitsap County. When Cat’s not obsessively researching the local market she can be found at her ‘Seabeck summer camp for grown-ups’ where she enjoys gardening, beach walking, hiking, hanging out with her Kelpie dog, or planning her next trip – probably to somewhere sunny to explore during our wet months in the Pacific Northwest.
