My name is Catherine Hansen, but my parents started calling me CJ when I was less than 1 year old. I've lived in the Helena area since I was about 10, but in Montana for almost my whole life. I am 28 years old, and have been married to my husband Brandon for over 7 years now. We have no kids, but we do have 2 adorable dogs, Roxy and Teddy, that get spoiled rotten! We live outside of East Helena towards Townsend. We have loved being back in Montana close to family.
I graduated from the University of Montana Western in 2015 with a degree in Elementary Education. After receiving my degree, my husband and I moved to Idaho so I could teach 1st grade for 2 years. We then moved back to Helena and I worked at Discovery Kidzone teaching a preschool class for about a year. Finally, during the 2020-2021 school year, I worked at Eastgate all year as the Teacher On Special Assignment, which was great since I got to meet and work with so many teachers and kids around the school!
A few of my favorite food things are pizza (I'll eat it anytime!), buttery popcorn, anything caramel flavored, and sweet iced tea! Some of my other favorite things are jigsaw puzzles, books of all kinds, almost any disney movie, and I love playing volleyball.
