Catherine is originally from Winter Park, Florida. She played midfield for the Winter Park Wildcats where she garnered all-district, all-county and all-Metro Conference honors. She led the Wildcats with 103 points on 56 goals and 47 assists. While in Florida, she also played club lacrosse for Lax Maniax. For her senior year of high school, she transferred to Our Lady of Good Counsel (Olney, MD) to take her game to the next level playing on the WCAC Championship team.
After her high school career, she ultimately landed a Division-I scholarship to play at San Diego State University. While at SDSU, she was a four-year starter as a defender for the Aztecs. Although defense was her main position, that didn’t stop her from crossing into the offensive 30 to tally up some points each season to continue to be an offensive threat.
She has lived in Chicago for the last three years, working downtown, while also taking on the role as the Assistant Coach for Lane Tech High School. Most recently, Catherine ventured back to Orlando and is excited to continue her love for lacrosse through coaching M&D Orlando. She is in her 2nd Year as the Assistant Coach of the 2025 Black Team.
In her free time, she loves to cook (leading her to create her own business Green Vine Meals), workout, and spend time with her puppy, Callie.
