Starting with ballet when she was a little girl, Catherine never realized how this was the beginning of a beautiful journey. At the age of 15 she started a Modeling course that opened her doors to many fashion shows, including Dominican Republic Fashion Week, commercial acting, photoshoots and later on to pageantry… all this while she was getting her bachelor’s degree in Media & Communications.
After a few local and national competitions, she was crowned Miss Dominican Republic International in 2011 and had the honor of representing her country in different parts of the world like: Bahamas, Italy, China, Colombia, USA and Indonesia –placing 1st at the Miss Coffee International 2012 pageant.
With her Communications degree, she had the opportunity to venture as a Radio and TV Host in the Dominican Republic. Once those contracts ended, her life in New York started.
After moving to the big apple, she was signed by CESD Agency and STATE Management for modeling jobs with L’Oréal, Citizen Watch, Samsung, Blackberry and QVC. During this time, she also had the privilege to work as an entertainment reporter for Telemundo.
It wasn’t until the near end of her journey as a New Yorker in 2017, when she discovered her purpose of teaching and got the inspiration to start Etiquette360 and educate young girls on how to behave as ladies.
Catherine now resides in Miami, FL where she’s studying for The English Manner and Beaumont Etiquette's Train the Trainer Certification and expanding her coaching services locally and virtually to children, teens and adults.
