Meet: Catherine Bernier

Catherine Bernier is a young, passionate skydiver who has run her own YouTube channel almost from when she started skydiving. Her fresh approach, enthusiasm and understanding of how it feels to be a new jumper make her videos super-watchable and easy to understand for the early skydiver.

Catherine is sponsored by Rigging Innovations, who manufacture the Curv and by Cookie helmets. It's a testament to the quality of her work to achieve sponsorship at a very early stage in her skydiving career.
