Catherine, our Philanthropy and Communications Associate, was born and raised in Lexington, KY. With a background in public relations, marketing and non-profit work, Catherine has a passion for communicating on behalf of organizations that strive to make the world a better place. She earned a Bachelor’s in Public Relations from the University of South Carolina and returned to Kentucky to earn a Master’s in Communication from the University of Kentucky.
