Catherine also served with her German shepherd dog, Marley, on WOOF Wilderness Finders working Search and Rescue missions in California and Wyoming. Through her years in Search and Rescue she gained knowledge about wilderness survival and became a wilderness first aid responder. Her work with her indigenous roots, elders, and teachers taught her to live interdependently with the earth and wants to share that with all who are willing to learn. Her passion is to advance a consciousness of interdependence among all peoples, for generations to come, through cultivating the physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual maturity of the 7th generation. Her work has reached 6 continents and thousands of people supporting and inspiring the practice in being nonviolence. Catherine is also the author of Peaceable Revolution Through Education.
