Often described as no non-sense. Cathrine is a quiet storm who has turned many tragedies into triumphs. She has an ability to identify and simplify complex issues in both the workplace and in one’s personal life.
Using her no-nonsense, can-do approach, Cathrine has helped women and organizations change their thinking and performance from defeated to determined, mediocrity to mastery and from stuck to sensational. As a result of Cathrine’s training programs, seminars or coaching sessions, women and organizations have enhanced their leadership, communication, relational and conflict resolution skills.
As a young girl, Cathrine knew she was created to make a difference in the world. However, like many, Cathrine was taught to go to school to get a “good job”. As a result, her dreams of instilling hope and adding value to the lives of others were placed on hold to pursue a career.
Prior to becoming a coach, trainer and speaker, Cathrine spent more than 25 years climbing the corporate ladder and fulfilling various management positions. Cathrine managed and coached hundreds of individuals, created training materials, conducted trainings, and acted as a liaison for large public entities and Fortune 500 companies.

Accountant and Financial Coach
"My journey with Cathrine as my transformation coach has been life changing. She helped me break down some mental strongholds, which freed me from the weight that was holding me back and draining my energy. Some of my relationships have completely changed for the better, and I am forever grateful to her for that. Her coaching style is quietly challenging, and she knew when to push me out of my comfort zone to help me take ownership to achieve the changes I wanted. After my coaching sessions, I found it so much easier to take action because the specific steps identified helped me move forward towards my goals. If you're looking for a coach to help you improve your personal performance, I recommend Cathrine."
Life & Confidence Coach
"I had the amazing opportunity to have Cathrine James as my Elevate Extraordinaire coach. We were perfectly matched, being aligned in our life experience, which made for an enriching coaching journey. She listened beyond the words that were said, challenging my thinking by offering tools and techniques that I could apply to help me forgive myself, learn to trust myself again, and see myself for the first time through the eyes of love. As a result of doing the deep inner work guided by Cathrine, I am at a place of peace within myself."
"When I started coaching I was down, depressed, easily angered, aggressive and a negative thinker. Today, I am no longer angered as easily, I’m less aggressive and learning not to bring up the past. Yelling, which I used to do often, actually annoys me now. I am less critical, more understanding and able to talk through things without shutting down. Overall I have learned to be the best me. Thank you Cathrine. If it were not for you I would be in the same ole’ rut."
