She joined the WBRC team in February 2018.

In addition, Catherine served as the Bureau Chief for the station's Thomasville Bureau, located one hour south of Albany.

She's grateful for the invaluable experience she gained while interning at WAGA-TV in Atlanta, and credits the FOX 5 Atlanta News Team for cementing her decision to pursue a career in journalism.

A native of Atlanta, Catherine is thrilled to join the WBRC team and experience the many wonderful attributes of Birmingham's Magic City! She's a lover of music and animals, a self-proclaimed foodie at heart, and enjoys traveling and sharing good times with family and friends.
