Catie holds a BA in Sociology from the University of Colorado and graduated from the Massage Therapy Institute of Colorado in 2007. After working in the spa industry, teaching at MTIC and then going on to private practice it seemed time to step away from full time work as a practicing massage therapist. In 2013, an opportunity to move into a new role as owner and director of Amara Massage Therapy & Wellness in Fort Collins, CO started a new journey and return home.
In the last four years Catie has focused on the learning and application of science-based massage therapy practices and how best to implement these practices in an employee based business/service setting. Catie has fostered a new model in Amara, hoping to combine the elements of emotional intelligence and the biopsychosocial model of care to give both guests and employees an experience grounded in self efficacy and authentic connection.
Catie also operates Evolve Coaching and is a professional member of the International Coaching Federation as well as the Six Seconds Organization. In her work as a certified EQ and mindfulness coach, Catie enjoys drawing from her background in somatic practices and bodywork to create quality presence and connection. Catie is available for professional one to one coaching as well as emotional intelligence leadership development for individuals and small business teams through Evolve Coaching.
