FRA Ambassador Biographies



Catherine is 34 years old and is one of our “Founding Families” remaining involved in FRA programs for all of her 34 years! When 30 years ago her mother started the original “Our Chance to Dance Program,” Catherine danced right along with her. As she got older, she volunteered in the program, assisting the children in the younger classes, both in the weekly classes, and on stage at the recital. Catherine also attended our summer camps, Teen Talk, Young Adult Conversations, and is now in Adult classes. Catherine works two days a week at McDonald’s, sings in the choir at her church, attends college at Brookdale and participates in Special Olympics. She is most proud of her Gold Medal in Basketball at the Special Olympics, and her Scholarship Award at Brookdale. She also enjoys going to dances, and going out to eat with her family and friends. She is looking forward to being an FRA Ambassador!
