Hi, I'm Cat Palmer. I'm glad you found me!
I have always been interested in how we understand the concept of "health," and believe that connectedness between body and spirit, and between individual and community is paramount to our experiences of wellness. This interest in holistic wellness eventually lead me to study Public Health and Human Services at Elon University, from where I graduated in May of 2015. After working in Alamance County for a year, focusing mainly on public nutrition and equitable access to health care, I went back to school this year at UNC Chapel Hill to become a lactation consultant, and now spend my time caring for mamas and babies. I am a self-professed nerd, and would happily spend the rest of my life in school if I could, study reproductive justice, community-building, and health equity.
Although I grew up in Boston, MA, I have fallen in love (hard) with North Carolina's rolling hills and welcoming communities. I live in Greensboro, but am known to roam I-40, exploring small towns and trekking far and wide to try a new yoga class or visit a farmers' market. In my spare time I love to cook for my friends and family, spend time outdoors, and consume as many books as possible.
