Send Cathie a Message
After 5 years of managing the local production office of Allied Vaughn Communications Cathie Schroder realized there was something missing in her life. When Allied Vaughn made the decision to close 15 offices nationwide, Cathie was given the opportunity to re-evaluate her needs and desires as she searched for new employment. In 2006, she joined the Centre for Women as an Operations Assistant. Her dedication and passion to the organization quickly showed and Cathie became the subject matter expert for compliance. She led the organization through their 3rd consecutive JCAHO accreditation. In 2012, Cathie came on board at Seniors in Service. She quickly showed she was a visionary leader as she restructured the Foster Grandparent Program with innovative programming, operational improvements and led the organization through an intense compliance audit that resulted in best practices. In 2018, in recognition of her growth and advancement of Foster Grandparents, Cathie was promoted to Director of Programs, overseeing all of Seniors in Service volunteer programs. Her dedication to delivering innovative solutions has resulted in more focused community programs to combat senior isolation, chronic health conditions, health and wellness, and children literacy.
