Cathy has had a passion for photography from a very young age. Using her dad’s camera whenever she could to take pictures of flowers, creatures, and scenery. She received her first Nikon camera and lenses as a gift from her parents for her 18th birthday. She thinks this was only so her dad could get his camera back. She has been in the photography business her entire life. At one time she owned her own high volume photography, trophy, and sportswear business for 14 years, before selling it to a trophy and sportswear company here in Edmonton. In 2001, she joined the team at Technicare as a branch manager, and in 2002 became a shareholder. From branch manager she moved into account manager for Alberta, then national sales and marketing manager and in 2016 became the general manager. When she is not at work she enjoys spending time out at the lake, golfing, traveling and taking her Nikon camera everywhere she goes.
