Optimist. Advocate. Defender of hope.

“I am far more aware than I’d particularly want to be about people’s inhumanity and the terrible things that some people do to their own families,” says Catherine Hedlin. “There are stories I will never forget and will never share—they’re just too ugly.”

In her previous life as the executive director of the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton, she saw many horrific things. And perhaps one of Catherine Hedlin’s greatest kindnesses to others is that she keeps those stories of heartbreak and inhumanity to herself.
