CSC staff profile: Cathleen Benevento

Meet our Centre Administration Coordinator, Cathleen Benevento, who joined the Contemplative Studies Centre in July 2021.

Cathleen joined the Contemplative Studies Centre after ten years working across both the Faculty of Arts and the Melbourne Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne. Having seen the recent explosion of interest in mindfulness and meditation, she was drawn to the Centre’s ethos of authenticity and genuine pursuit of evidence-based outcomes. Cathleen ensures the smooth running of the Centre’s administrative activities including email enquiries, diary management, website maintenance and event coordination, and strives to offer an exceptional standard of service to the Contemplative Studies Centre team and its community. When she’s not at work, you can find Cathleen baking cakes and cookies, treasure-hunting at flea markets and op-shops, or practising her French with a new movie or magazine.
