Catherine Smith is a British-born, Pacific Northwest-based freelance writer. Her wanderlust began at an early age and continued through her university years when she studied French, followed by European Business Administration. The highlight of her degree course was spending a "year abroad". After many years in the corporate world and then a career break, Catherine decided to reignite her creative skills and study journalism with the London School of Journalism. As a keen food and wine enthusiast, Catherine tries to keep her life in balance by practicing Pilates and weight training. You can connect with Catherine on Instagram.
