Catherine is a Portland native who grew up in Texas as a military brat. She fell in love with Oregon from an early age on many trips to visit family and in 2015, finally fulfilled a lifelong dream to live here. She started in the legal field as an office runner while attending the University of Texas. She found that she enjoyed working in a law office and continued as a legal secretary for several law firms and an oil & gas company in Dallas and Austin.
After taking a long break from the office to raise a large family, Catherine decided to rejoin the work force as a real estate agent. After moving to Portland, she found it was a great way to learn the area. In 2023, she saw an intriguing opportunity to join McKean Smith as their Portland Office Receptionist and decided to come full circle. She loves being in the front office and at the center of a busy workplace.
Catherine and her husband are now empty nesters and love to travel all over the PNW, ski, snowshoe, attend Trailblazers games, concerts, and movies. She also enjoys time spent with her children and grandchildren.
