Voices began with the original play Butterflies devised / written by Cate and a dedicated team of young actors which was based on the story of Hana Brady, first explored by Cate at a National Drama conference with renowned Professor Belarie Zatzman from Toronto University. It led to further study, a number of postgraduate qualifications including a Masters from Warwick University and meeting numerous inspirational survivors and educators who persuaded Cate to change direction and dedicate her professional life to telling the stories that needed to be told.
Cate lives in Milton Keynes with her very patient partner, a usually patient seven-year-old and an impatient house bunny who has a tendency to chew through her laptop cable and slow her down when she is working from home. In her spare time she volunteers at a homeless shelter when she is not cooking in her kitchen or becoming something of an expert in space and dinosaurs thanks to a small boy. In the year of Covid, Cate has been loving working as a support worker for adults with learning disabilities.
