50 over 50 2022 Edition

Catherine Burns

Meet the participants of the 50 over 50 Portrait Experience 2022 Edition. 

In their own words……

Warm. Kind. Approachable.

  1. 60.

  2. Have more faith in yourself. Stop and reflect. You are enough. Working yourself into the ground is not worth it. Ever. For anyone. Protect yourself and respect your own boundaries. Life IS what you make it.

  3. Kindness, and friendly enthusiasm. She has been through more than most in this lifetime, and yet she’s still standing. It’s a testament to her indomitable character.

  4. Both my parents were born in Ireland and emigrated to the U.S. in the 1959s. Although they lived only 20 miles from each other in Ireland, they met in NYC.  We remain very proud and connected to our Irish heritage.

  5. I’ve endured a difficult life and marriage for 37 years, a divorce, and am a breast cancer survivor.

  6. I’m most proud of my overall strength of character, tenacity and determination.

  7. Flowers and being in nature brings me joy – and puppies!

  8. I have spent more than 40 years working as a grant writer for a number of impactful nonprofit organizations in Fairfield County, CT.
