She started her career at WMBF producing the 5pm news and transitioned to an executive producer position in May 2010.

Catherine worked at WPXI in Pittsburgh for two years as an associate producer before making the move to Myrtle Beach.
In her time away from the newsroom, Catherine enjoys long distance running and reading. She also likes to cook, travel and cheer on the Steelers.
