She is a Level II practitioner of the Dr. Edward Bach Flower Remedies system of healing. Catherine is actively pursuing her studies of medicinal herbs and flower essences, and will begin a three-year clinical herbal medicine program with the CommonWealth Center for Holistic Herbalism in Boston, MA, in 2019.
