Catherine Ryan

Many years ago, I came from Rhode Island to Washington, DC for an internship and have never left. The professional hats I have worn here include: investigator/chief investigator, legal recruiter, career counselor, advocate for teens in foster care and consultant. All of these positions required an ability to connect well with people, gain their trust, identify issues or challenges, then create and implement solutions.

A little more about me: the personal hats I wear — wife, mom and lover of family, friends, food, music, flowers, travel, and our family cottage in Ireland. My favorite cap: Washington Nationals.
