Catherine’s fascination with the body began as a young child with her love of creative dance expression and the freedom she experienced on stage. She enjoyed the challenges and magic of this art form through a 20 year professional career as a Modern Dancer and Choreographer in New York City, earning a Master’s Degree in Dance from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
When it became clear that performance alone would not cover the bills and teaching did not fulfill her passion, she sought a career change and applied to chiropractic college. While attending Logan College of Chiropractic, Catherine did advanced studies in Chiropractic Neurology and the chiropractic methods of Sacro-Occipital Technique and Applied Kinesiology before discovering the profound life-changing work of Network Spinal Analysis.
