Catherine has devoted her career to public service, first as a librarian and since 2015 as an elections administrator. She has conducted 15 elections, starting and developing the first Voter Education and Outreach program of its kind in the state. Prior to moving to Oregon, she worked as a Registrar of Voters in California. Catherine has a Masters degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Washington, an Executive Masters in Public Administration from Portland State University, and is certified by the Oregon Association of County Clerks.
