Cathy Laffan

Vice President of the Board

I grew up in Norwell, Massachusetts. After graduating from Bridgewater State University, my husband and I have lived in Florida, Texas, and North Carolina. My parents gave me their best traits; my mom gave me her passion for helping people and being compassionate and my dad gave me his love of horses and entrepreneurial spirit.

I founded my Life Coaching business, Cathy Laffan Coaching, LLC, in 2020 after a thirty-plus-year career in global financial services. I am a certified coach and motivational speaker. I partner with clients in creating or navigating big changes in their lives to help them achieve their goals faster than they thought possible.

I started volunteering at the Helping Horse in November 2022. I was elected to the Board of Directors in February 2023 and am currently Vice President. The most rewarding part of being a Helping Horse team member is seeing the positive impact our programs, instructors, and volunteers have on the students and their families. It’s humbling and powerful.

My health and well-being are the foundation of my life. I enjoy cooking and eating a whole food plant-based diet. I thrive when I’m physically active. My favorite activities include hiking, walking, running, biking, pickleball, yoga, swimming, and more. 

I am honored to be a volunteer and Board member. I am committed to Helping Horse’s mission and devote my heart, skills, and abilities to serving the students and families.
