Catherine grew up in South Jersey before finding herself at Rice University in Houston, Texas. At Rice, she found her love for entrepreneurship after selecting the required freshman writing class that best accommodated her schedule and happened to center on developing a business plan for an education focused product. She graduated in 2017 with a degree in Political Science and joined Venture For America as a 2017 Fellow. She moved to Charlotte where she worked with two education focused start-ups (coincidence? we think not) where she wore many hats working on everything from information system architecture to sales. Once she wrapped up her work at VersaMe she joined the VFA team. In her free time, you can find Catherine searching for the perfect local coffee shop or trying all the nearest restaurants in an effort to avoid cooking.
