She is a graduate of the University of British Columbia, holding a BFA in Film Production, and is a fellow of the CFTPA Producers Internships program, the documentary Channel Doc Accelerator Program and the DOC Breakthrough Program.
She has a web series where she explores weird festivals and competitions. She has toe wrestled, crab raced and worm charmed her way across the globe. Cat's 2016 film about the Toronto Repair Cafe, FIXED!, won first place in the 2016 Hot Docs Short Film Pitch competition and has been winning awards on the festival circuit. Her 2017 film BIG MEN, SMALL DOGS (CBC Short Docs) went viral with over a million views in the first few weeks of its release.
