Cathy has worked with the transgender community since 2003, first as a Peer Educator at Kulia Na Mamo, then eventually as the Transgender Service Manager at the Hawaii Health and Harm Reduction Center. Cathy is proud of her academic accomplishments in the University of Hawaii – West Oahu, where she received a B.S. in Public Administration; she continues to use these skills to help her Native Hawaiian community. She has been successful in advocating for transgender programming and providing culturally competency trainings around the nation, but prides herself mainly on being a role model for younger transgender women in Hawai`i.
