The A Team
Dr CathEnvironmental Consultant
My passion for the oceans started just after my first dive, when I was 8.5 years old. Yes, that’s a long time ago! Scientist, entrepreneur, endurance athlete and wife, I race in Ironman triathlons when I’m not underwater.
I have worked for various universities and agencies in Belgium, France, the Azores, Dubai, Trinidad, the Cayman Islands, Bonaire, the Bahamas, Madagascar and the Turks and Caicos Islands. I also have authored and co-authored numerous scientific papers and technical reports.

I co-founded Elemental Solutions in 2010 to push back against the ever-increasing pressure on the environment. I have strong project management oversight in building out billion dollar infrastructures and hold various certifications. Our team recently finished the largest Reef Ball reef in the Bahamas, deploying over 300 units. Our construction techniques now focus directly on the environment, always trying to do it better, safer and healthier.
My passion for the ocean began when I was 4 years old and it has grown ever since! I’ve studied great white sharks in South Africa, dolphins in Greece, and marine ecosystems in the Caribbean. I’m a GIS* ninja and aim to use my skills in marine conservation anywhere I can.
