Catherine Reid Day is a poet, essayist, psychologist, storyteller, and founder of Storyslices, a story-based creative agency. She co-produced the award-winning public television series “Mental Engineering” and served as a Vice President for Macalester and Carleton Colleges and the Minnesota Children’s Museum. At Public Radio International, she developed distinctive public radio programs including “Marketplace” and “The World.” She holds a Master's in Organizational Consulting and Leadership from Adler Graduate School. Today, she practices cultural psychology, a story-based approach to understanding one’s identity, behavior, and motivations. These themes run through much of her work, and she is a sought-after speaker and teacher. Her work has been published in the Journal of Individual Psychology.
Catherine grew up in Iowa climbing trees, playing kick the can, and losing herself reading books. She now lives in the Twin Cities, where she’s adapting her story-based identity development method into the forthcoming book Identity, Longing, and Desire: The Urgency of Who You Are.
