Meet the team

We had a number of false starts with content writers and strategists and really none of them worked for us. Even so-called experts. Catherine is fantastic and a real pleasure to work with. She totally immerses herself in your business and culture to understand your unique proposition so as to communicate this well in her work. We have been so pleased with everything she has done for us and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Sean McDonald, MOBIT Mobile Marketing Technologies
We initially met for 1 hour and [Catherine] just got my business and was so easy to work with. I look forward to a continued relationship with Bright Planning and working many projects down the road. Thanks for all your help and for making my new website such a success!
Kara Candler, Tick Tock Concierge

Her voice is calm. Her advice is sound. Her integrity is the finest you will find in business. Use her services and you are guaranteed more success.
