Meet Cathy Baim

Written by Jo Ann M. Colton on .

Cathy Baim relocated to Conifer in 2008 because of her husband’s job…. Yet, ironically, it was her husband’s job that ultimately led Cathy to unselfishly follow a path that would serve to help members of our community.

Cathy is a licensed clinical social worker who maintained two private practices in Wisconsin, but initially took some time off after moving to Colorado. She then accepted employment with Mountain Peace Shelter (PeaceWorks, Inc.) as a counselor, working there for a year. It was there that she met PeaceWorks’ Volunteer Coordinator Sharon Smith, Executive Director of Evergreen Christian Outreach.

Unfortunately, Cathy’s husband’s job didn’t work out, which prompted him to seek other employment wherever the best opportunity would present itself. When he secured a job on the East Coast and their departure from Colorado seemed inevitable, the couple’s plan to move was somewhat compromised due to the stalled real estate market.
