Catina is the Executive Director and Co-founder of Grief and Hope Connect. She is passionate about honest, vulnerable, taboo conversations about hard things. She has experienced many losses and has been deeply shaped by the pain and hope that ensued. She believes that most people want to help those who are hurting in their lives they just don't know how. She can't stand when people complain about problems and don't offer solutions. Grief and Hope Connect was born on the couch in Alice Staley's living room, just two grievers hurting and seeing a need, and wanting to be part of the solution. Our mission is to equip, empower and educate the non griever to come alongside the griever in a helpful way. Catina is a wife, a mom, a foster mom, an artist, a speaker, a Jesus worshiper, a goofball and a person who is passionate about emotional and spiritual healing.
Catina is an (INELDA) trained End Of Life Doula, a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, and an Ordained Chaplin.
