Catharene Garula
Deserving Our Pay

The news about the pay gap between men and women is real. The facts are old news but it still exists. Do you want to be part of the solution?  Come to be inspired by learning how some brave souls are stirring things up!  Be the change is a great bumper sticker. In real life, there are real things we can all do that will nudge the needle forward. 

We need not wait to see what others will do.  - Mahatma Ghandi

Since the early 1980s, Catharene has been on the forefront of creating positive change.  As a young mother and activist, she spearheaded the relocation initiative for Centralia, PA, where an underground coal mine fire damaged the health and property values of local residents. The $42 million Federal appropriation was the USA’s largest environmental relocation of the 20th Century.

Catharene, a woman of spirit and wit, has a long history of making meaningful strides where women were not commonly seen. A pioneer and successful business development executive in the male dominated high tech and digital media industries; Catharene remains passionate about cutting edge technologies. After a series of advancements in sales, marketing, strategy, and leadership positions at digital powerhouses, she founded Achievement Interactive in 2013. Leveraging her experience consulting with C-Level executives she implements proven methods to increase revenue, maximize profit, fill sales pipelines, develop audience engagement and heighten brand awareness for her clients. 

Personally, Catharene remains active in a number of non-profit initiatives.

Catharene and her husband, Sam enjoy stargazing, gardening, raising free range chickens and honey bees at their Perry County farm. They have five children, three precious grandchildren, a Great Dane, a house cat, and several barn cats. In their spare time they nap. You should, too!
