What is your name?: Catherine or Cat
Where are you from?: San Francisco, but moved to Seattle in Third Grade. I’ve been homeless on and off my whole adult life.
What do you think of the neighborhood?: I like Wallingford. The people are friendly. They have enough money to buy the paper but they don’t have so much money that they’re snobs.
Favorite Wallingford moment?: I meet people I wouldn’t ordinarily meet, it’s been a real blessing, the interaction with people in my daily life. I met some friends here who got me involved with a class at Antioch University, a women’s group.
Finally, what is your favorite food?: Homemade cheesecake!
