Catherine hails from Cork, Ireland, and moved to Switzerland in 2014. She studied Physical Education and the Irish language at university, earning a Bachelor of Education degree in 2010. After four years of rewarding work as a secondary school teacher in Ireland, Catherine completed a CELTA certificate which qualifies her to teach English as a second language. She has been teaching Business English in Lucerne since 2014. She has also qualified as a Cambridge speaking examiner since moving to Switzerland. She mainly teaches in-company business classes along with lessons at a business school, all of which provide her with an interesting and varied insight into the business world. Catherine lives in Lucerne with her partner (and wishes she had a dog).
