HELLO. I AM CATHERINE.
Tech marketer & parent. Loves cooking and reading, and really good coffee.
Welcome to The Cabro
The Cabro is a space that speaks to the unique challenges of the modern working woman and aims to inspire stylish mothers who strive to maintain their sense of self while fostering strong relationships with their partners, building a meaningful career, and raising healthy children.
I founded The Cabro during the haze of maternity leave in late 2020 in an attempt to create what I could not find on the internet: a place for working mothers to see how another working mother gets it done. I spent much of my pregnancy and maternity leave cobbling together a plan for how I wanted to step into this new role of motherhood. Eager to share my findings with others, I decided it was time to resurrect my love for writing and create my own space on the internet. The Cabro is a resource for working mothers on topics related to career, parenthood, and lifestyle. While I don’t believe we can have it all and do it all at the same time, we can be thoughtful about what we will prioritize in different seasons of our lives. I look forward to learning from the powerful community of working mothers and sharing my insights as I navigate the new role of working mom.

A little more about me
You can read more about my career on LinkedIn. Currently I work in product marketing for the cybersecurity team at Microsoft. I help develop the brand strategy and write the narrative for our compliance products. Microsoft is an incredible company and I’m excited about the impact our work has on the world today. I have my MBA from Cornell University and an MA in Counseling-Psychology. I use my dual degrees to drive impactful customer experiences, advocate for diversity and inclusion, and build strong project teams that focus on driving customer impact. I enjoy mentoring early-career women who want to make a shift in their career or expand their influence in the workplace.
I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband and our son Z. In my free time, I am an avid reader, enjoy traveling with my family, and am always planning my next meal. While I live in the Pacific Northwest, I am highly influenced by my upbringing in the South; I love all things chinoiserie and live for butter. I am usually not far from an ice cold glass of Coca-Cola. I enjoy hearing from readers—feel free to message me: catherine at thecabro dot com or find me on Instagram at @_thecabro where I hang out daily.
