Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Catherine obtained her BA in Theatre from SF State University, during which time, she played Berdine in Psycho Beach Party at the Zephyr Theatre, marking the beginning of a 30+ year career as a professional actress and voice over artist. Later in life, she went back to school and received her Master of Fine Arts in Acting & Directing from Regent University.
Along with her stage career (of over 55 productions), Catherine has extensive experience touring educational theatre throughout Northern California with Kaiser Permanente, and around the Pacific Northwest with Taproot Theatre Company (Seattle, WA). Some favorite stage roles include Bella in Lost in Yonkers, June in Smoke on the Mountain, Sarah in Beau Jest, Kathleen in Terra Nova, and Olive in The Women of Lockerbie.
With her improv and comedy skills, Catherine has delighted online fans as the hilariously pitiful Liz throughout 3 seasons of the web series Betty and DD (awarded LA WebFest Outstanding Mockumentary series). Combining her strong character work with her voice over training, she discovered audiobook narration while living in Los Angeles (working with the phenomenal Deyan Audio team) and is still able to continue her narrating work after being transplanted to Virginia (her most recent title is Unexpected Superhero, available on Audible.com). Keep your eye out for Catherine as the dastardly Mrs. Fogg in the hilarious comedy feature film Can I Get A Witness Protection? available at Amazon.com.
A proud member of SAG-AFTRA, Catherine is currently based in the beautiful Bluegrass, just south of Lexington, Kentucky where she is blessed to be able to tell stories from the stage, at the microphone, and on screen. She is honored and humbled to be married to the best partner in the world , the amazingly talented writer and professor, Sean.
