Catherine Hambley, Ph.D.
Catherine was born and raised in Canada, then moved to California in her early twenties. She began her career as a nurse, then returned to school for a Ph.D. in psychology and had a private clinical practice in Monterey for over 15 years. Currently, she works as a consulting psychologist with a focus on translating brain science into helping create meaningful and lasting change for leaders and organizations. As principal at Leapfrog Consulting, she does the majority of her work locally. She believes in giving back to the community – she volunteers and has sat on several boards. The work that takes up most of her volunteer time is with the Stanford Alumni Consulting Team, where she and her colleagues provide pro-bono business consulting to local not-for-profit agencies. Catherine and her husband Richard have raised their four children (all of whom are now adults) in Monterey, where the whole family has had the opportunity to enjoy the splendor of the Central Coast.
“As a medical professional and psychologist, I feel honored to be part of the Hospice Giving Foundation because I believe that every person deserves the opportunity to make decisions about their end-of-life journey.”
