Catherine is Rossendale Born and Bred and LOVES the Valley.
She has pantomimed, zip wired, skydived and salsa danced her way through life with her cup half full most of the time, while raising two small people to independent adults. More adult than herself!
She has had a very varied career as a beauty therapist, teaching assistant, you might remember her from Arty Party Pottery in Waterfoot years ago! Then, a chance phone call to win a competition to be a radio presenter for one hour, led to a change in career and a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
This fed her already huge love for Radio as she worked at Radio Lancashire, Radio 4 and Radio Drama. And still keeps her hand in with Children in Need (she might tell you her secret about Pudsey Bear if you ask her nicely....)
She now finds herself loving volunteering for Rossendale Radio and getting involved with local events.
