Catherine has a B.S. degree in Business Administration from The University of North Carolina and a master’s degree in Counselor Education from The University of Alabama. She has spent over 25 years in private practice and nonprofit work. Her clinical specialties in couples counseling, mood management and cognitive behavioral therapy have provided her with expertise in effective communication which she brings to all areas of her life and career. As a co-founder of a Birmingham nonprofit in 2006, she has close to 20 years of experience managing the property, facilities, and operations for that organization in addition to maintaining a thriving private practice.

Four years ago, Catherine moved to Baldwin County to live closer to her parents in Fairhope. She oversaw the construction of her new home (designed by Ono resident Kristen Coll) and fell in love with residential construction and the inner workings and systems of a home. As a seventh-generation property owner in Baldwin County, she is thrilled to live full-time on Ono Island and enjoy the beautiful Gulf Coast. While walking, biking, and driving on the island with Stephanie, both noticed how many homes on Ono sit empty when owners are away. Holding property management and maintenance close to her heart, Catherine felt pulled to help owners know what was happening while they were away from their homes. She is proud to be a founding member of Goat Island Guardians and serving this community through a home watch service.
