Cat is a New Jersey native and super proud of it. Her love of Hoboken becomes apparent when anyone from across the Hudson tries to degrade the beloved Mile Square. When not out of town for her 9 to 5 travel industry gig, she can be found in downward dog at Asana Soul Practice, drinking a sour at Cork City, reading at Pier A, or—let’s be honest—devouring a Luca Brasi chicken parm sandwich while binge-watching Netflix.
