Having lived in many vibrant cities around the world Cath is eager to bring the best elements of all to her home town. A fluent Welsh speaker, Cath wishes her linguistic skills also extended to fluency in Spanish so that she may converse freely with her husband’s family in El Salvador and is busy educating everyone she meets on her travels that Swansea is in Wales and not England!
