Catherine Polisi Jones is the Founder of ancient holistic therapy center NAAD CENTER and President and Founder of strategic advisory firm Polisi Jones, which she founded after advising some of the largest and most well-known public and private companies in the world on their communications strategies throughout the past 20 years.
In 2013, Catherine experienced a dramatic shift in her life whereby the universe moved her into a new phase in her spiritual journey that led to deeper study, discovery and reflection of her authentic self and the healing capacity we all have within ourselves. With that journey came greater introspection and reconnection with the creative healing arts that have always come naturally for her—sound, intuitive insight, physicality and meditative mindfulness. As a KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor, Sound Therapist, Medical Intuitive, Meditation and Pranayama Teacher and Sekhem Energy Healer, she integrates multiple modalities into her individual intuitive therapy sessions as healing in the Aquarian age is meant to be deeply connected rather than disparate, made up of the melding of many disciplines into one powerful modality, rather than separated into parts.
As a child who knew things but didn’t know why and saw things that others did not, she decided as an adult to step into her power by exploring rather than ignoring these unexplainable experiences. Now as an intuitive, she uses her vision and ability to read and interpret energy to help others experience healing through themselves. She is a facilitator, a conduit of information from other dimensions and spirit energies and does not refer to herself as a healer as she strongly believes in empowering others to heal themselves. She offers her service in light and love with deep gratitude for the human experience we are offered on this earth.
Prior to founding Polisi Jones in 2014, Catherine served in senior roles at leading strategic communications firms in New York City and Greenwich, including Brunswick Group, Joele Frank, Wilkinson Brimmer Katcher (JWBK) and ASC Advisors. She works with companies globally across all sectors, advising clients on media and investor communications, marketing strategies, messaging, brand building, online branding and social media strategy, media and presentation coaching, mergers and acquisitions, shareholder activism, internal communications and corporate crises.
In 2008, while Global Head of Media Relations for Lehman Brothers' Investment Banking Division, Catherine took a leadership role in managing and executing Lehman Brothers' corporate crisis communications initiatives during the global financial crisis, the firm's bankruptcy and subsequent acquisition of Lehman Brothers by Barclays Capital. Catherine continued her communications role at Barclays Capital after it acquired Lehman and helped rebrand Barclays' new investment banking platform.
In addition to her work in strategic communications, Catherine also previously worked as a television reporter at WENY-ABC in Elmira, NY and News 12 CT, and as a print reporter at The Ithaca Journal in Ithaca, NY.
Catherine received her B.A. in Art History at Williams College and M.A. in International Law, International Affairs and Economics from The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).
