Catherine was born in Corvallis and, although she moved to Portland when she was still in grade school, Corvallis always stayed close to her heart. Memories of playing at Adams Elementary, cheering on the Beavers at OSU Basketball games, rooting for her sister during swim meets at Osborn, and climbing on the train and dinosaur bones at Avery Park are some of her favorites. She even learned how to sign her name for the first time just so she could get her very own library card at the Corvallis Public Library.

Catherine left Oregon to live in St. Louis, Missouri where she attended Washington University and then started both her family and real estate career. Catherine adopted 2 sons, birthed another and started and managed her own real estate brokerage, development, and property management business while in St. Louis. Although happy and busy, Catherine felt the pull of the welcoming community and the feeling of home in Oregon. Knowing that Corvallis would offer everything she and her family needed, Catherine and her family made the move back to Oregon in 2008. In 2009, Catherine's fourth and last son joined the team. (Catherine figured she would not ever get a girl so she should stop trying before being further outnumbered.)

Catherine has found that the growth of Corvallis has brought a lot of really great people and has made her hometown even better, further reinforcing all the positive childhood memories. "I played with my kids on the train and dinosaur bones in Avery Park, our children all took swim lessons at Osborn, and of course, we cheer for the Beavers at basketball (and football) games." And, as would be expected, Catherine has helped all four boys get their very own library cards at the Public Library. The sense of community has never wavered, and it has been incredibly rewarding to reestablish meaningful relationships in and out of the business community. Having moved away and then come back to Corvallis, Catherine knows just how special this community is, and what a wonderful place it is to live and work.
