Interesting Facts
Catherine initially took up skydiving in 2006 as a positive means of distraction during her divorce. She has since gone on to complete over 1500 jumps. A true VFS proponent, Catherine says she is much more comfortable flying on her head than on her belly - the latter position makes her nervous.
