Cat Greenleaf is the epitome of a modern day wonder woman. She really has done it all. She was born in New York but has lived in Los Angeles and San Francisco, studied in Boston, and then wandered aimlessly around the globe for a bit, because, why not? Despite all her travels though, Cat is a tried-and-true New Yorker and laughs when she says, “Once a New York Jew, always a New York Jew.”
A popular television personality, she’s been in the entertainment industry for years, starting as a traffic reporter, then testing her hand at news and features. She currently has her dream job hosting NBC’s Talk Stoop, where she interviews actors, politicians, athletes, and musicians on the stoop of her Brooklyn townhouse.
Bubbly and inviting, the entrepreneur and her husband recently put her hosting skills to the test in a different way, opening The Catskill Mountain House in the Catskills. The popular event venue features 10 acres, a 3-bedroom house, a restored barn, and a couple of vintage Airstreams. It’s become a perfect avenue for Cat, as she loves meeting new people and helping them turn their dreams into reality.
Not wanting to ever choose between her two lives, she’s living the best of both worlds, spending her weekends in the mountains and her week— albeit a short one— in the city. She often finds herself driving the family back around 3am on a Tuesday and uses this time to reflect on her life’s good fortune. She says, “Watching the sky grow light and then turn pink as the sun wakes up the mountains, with my kids and dogs snoring softly in the back as we head to the city is the most magical moment of my week.”
We here at The Fullest love this woman and her outlook on life, so we asked her to share with us the seven things she’s loving on the most at the moment. This is what she said:
1 | Can I count my 3 dogs, 2 kids and 1 husband as a single item: family?!
2 | An unending line into my Spotify.
3 | My fully loaded Kindle Reader.
4 | A comfy pair of classic black and white checkered Vans.
5 | My Helen Ficalora necklace with a zillion charms which I’m sure protects me from all evil!
6 | A hotline used only to check in on my sister and parents.
7 | A webcam monitor so I can always see the dynamic, ever changing view from The Catskill Mountain House!
