“I was raised Jersey strong. Nothing in this life can shake me.”
Dolores Catania is a mother, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and the living embodiment of a modern-day housewife. From her humble beginnings in Paterson, NJ, Dolores has put family above all elseâ€”she has worked tirelessly to ensure a cohesive family unit with her two children Gabrielle and Frankie, and ex-husband Frank. Dolores has mastered reinvention: She started as a correction officer, then trained to be a surgical technician, and has fueled her passion for all things New Jersey as a licensed realtor for 15 plus years at Premier Realty and most recently opened two Powerhouse Fitness Centers. Dolores makes time not only for work and family, but for her beloved rescue dogs Loli and Lola. She supports the Onyx & Breezy Foundation, whose mission is improving and saving the lives of animals every day. Additionally, Dolores advocates for Saint Josephâ€™s Childrenâ€™s Hospital. Through all that life has thrown at her, you can always find Dolores going back to her roots, as sheâ€™s not one to forget where it all started.
