CATHY FAERBER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Cathy has been a resident of Naples for over 40 years where she raised
her three children, became certified as a yoga instructor and taught
restorative yoga to athletes with injuries. She holds real estate and community
association management licenses and has renovated investment homes. Cathy love
of the outdoors and active lifestyle has made preservation and stewardship of
nature and resources a top priority.
The organizations closest to her heart focus on accessibility to
the natural beauty of Naples and surrounding areas, while promoting active
lifestyles. Cathy has served as a Naples Pathways Coalition (NPC) board member
cumulatively for over nine years and currently serves on the Southwest Florida
Land Preservation Trust (Gordon River Greenway) Board. The nearly completed greenway project
prompted Cathy’s return to NPC.
Cathy is an avid cyclist and runner who understands firsthand
the safety issues plaguing our state and the importance of educating our
community. She is excited and honored to continue the NPC's longstanding
tradition of working closely with the local government and law enforcement agencies
advocating for the safety of pedestrians and cyclist on our roads. Cathy
is passionate about the expansion and connectivity of Collier County’s limited
off-road, multi-use pathways and thrilled to be a part of the NPC's launch of
the future 70 plus mile Paradise Coast Trail.
