Catharine is an accomplished CEO and Health Educator. She grew up in Canada and has lived in the USA since finishing her MBA in 1986, over 30 years ago. Catharine founded the algae tablet company ENERGYbits in Boston MA in 2009 after her younger sister in Canada had been diagnosed with breast cancer and advised by her oncologist that an alkaline diet would be important for her healing.
Catharine helped her sister research what foods she should eat. In the process, Catharine learned about the healing properties of plant-based nutrition. This ultimately led Catharine to algae – the most nutrient dense, alkaline, sustainable food crop in the world with vast healing properties, all of which were science-based and documented in over 100,000 studies but virtually unknown outside of Asia.
Catharine has spent over ten years researching algae and educating consumers, athletes, wellness and beauty professionals about its health and environmental benefits. Now considered the country’s leading expert on algae nutrition, Catharine is a sought after speaker at health, wellness, nutrition, environment and fitness conferences and is a frequent guest on podcasts and television.
