Fun Facts from Catherine

  • I raced triathlons and started a triathlon team for my university in college.

  • I LOVE being outdoors... camping, hiking, biking, skiing, running, soaking up sun by any source of water.

  • I was a nationally certified ski patroller for 20 years.

  • My job as a mom is the hardest one of my life. I am fierce, silly, and loving in that role and have learned enough humility to own when I screw it up badly.

  • I love to travel - passport stamps are like badges of honor for me.

  • I used to teach healthy cooking classes. Cooking is my creative outlet and I love to nourish my body with healthy foods, but don't get between me and a warm cookie or slice of cheesecake - you might lose a hand.

  • I am a terrible speller and can’t learn a foreign language to save my life.

  • One of my nicknames in my family is Master Fire Builder – I am fantastic at starting and keeping a fire alive!

Fun Facts from Kel

  • ​Cheez-its are my comfort food. I almost always have a box nearby.

  • I have been married for almost 22 years. It is the fact about me I am most proud of because I know the hard work and tremendous love it has taken to achieve.

  • My first concert was Paula Abdul and Color me Badd. Singing "I Wanna Sex You Up" at the top of my lungs as a 12 year old seems awkward to me looking back. 

  • I love volunteering. I will raise my hand to help with almost anything. Bake sale, yes please, Room mom, I got it, Make a meal for someone, sure thing.  I am currently serving on two female led community action groups and love it.

  • I am learning to knit. I have found it is a huge cure for overthinking. 

  • I will eat anything. There is no food I won't try. I have eaten alligator, rattlesnake, all type of bugs, chicken hearts, sweet breads, pork knuckle, frog legs, poutine...
