Cathy McLinden

Cathy and her family moved to Forbes 10 years ago, which was a big switch up from her usual life on the North Coast. Prior to her move she worked in a business firm on the North Coast for 26 years and has also worked as a financial advisor and bookkeeper for Forbes Vet Clinic for over 7 years and in financial auditing for 3 years with a firm in Orange.

She loves the country life and found the increasingly relaxed lifestyle, room to spread out and the friendly community very easy to adapt to. Cathy loves spending her time within the community and is a current volunteer with the Vinnies Sacred Heart Conference.

Her and her husband have run a small trucking business since 2007, which has allowed her to see the positives and benefits of being a small business owner through her own personal experiences and she is excited to use these experiences to help others. When not working you will find Cathy working in her huge garden, reading, cooking, or spending quality time with her family.
