About Me

Welcome to The Confidently Speaking! I hope you feel welcome here because that is what it is all about.


I’m Catherine and my dream here is to help you feel a little more confidence in your life. It took me a long time to build up the courage to start sharing my ideas with all of you. One day I finally realized that it will all work out if I put a little more confidence in my idea, and myself. I believe we all have the confidence life asks for.

I grew up in Seattle, WA but currently live in Northern Utah with my husband, Erich, and our two twin boys. I taught 5th grade for three years before becoming a stay at home mom. I love spending time with family, a sunny day filled with adventure, and a good soda shop.

Growing up I never felt like I really fit into one stereotype or group. I was the only girl in a family of six. I went to high school where I was one of twenty LDS students. I curled my hair and wore worn-out vans and band tees. Sometimes it was hard to be a little different. But most of the time I enjoyed it. I love being able to surprise people with who I am. I want to be able to share that rush with others.

The Confidently Speaking is the idea that we can all be different and surprise those around us. Wear what we enjoy wearing. Cook that yummy treat. Have a home where we are comfortable. Be different and share your ideas confidently.
