Cathy Parker

Co-Founder, PhilanthroFilms, Inc.

Cathy Parker’s endeavor to put an artificial football field in the most northern village of Alaska received national media attention with Cathy being the “Person of the Week” on both ABC and NBC networks and ESPN’s Outside the Lines. Her book Northern Lights details this journey of faith mixed with perseverance, and a major motion film based on this true story is in pre-production.

Her most recent endeavor is the launching of PHILANTHROFILMS, a Georgia based non-profit focused on attracting film production to the South Georgia Region and developing training programs to grow the film industry’s crew base.

She continues to motivate audiences by spreading her message that God uses ordinary people working together to do the extraordinary.
