About Catherine

For women who are facing major life changes, I am a writer and podcaster who explores global themes from diverse cultural perspectives both on my show The Accidental Anthropologist Podcast and my blog The Accidental Anthropologist Essays. My goal is to suspend default assumptions about how things “should be done.”

My multi-cultural background and experiences as a Filipina/American/Canadian in Europe for 20+ years have made me culturally-astute at embracing “the new normal.” I try to approach it all with sensitivity, humour, authenticity and kindness.
