Student, coach, and Photographer in East Cobb, Georgia
Hi, I’m Catherine. I’m a student living from East Cobb, Georgia. I am a fan of photography, music, and food. I graduated from Blessed Trinity (BT). I am the youngest of three and the only kid in my family in college right now. My brother graduated from Georgia Tech in 2017 and now works for PowerPlan in Smyrna. My sister recently graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio. We don't know what she's doing yet. My mom works at BT as a chemistry teacher and my dad works in an office somewhere in Buckhead.
I swam competitively for 7 years for Chattahoochee Gold and did 4 years swimming with my high school. My junior and senior years I was a captain of both teams and helped to lead my high school team to become state champions in my senior year. That is something I am extremely proud of and my favorite memory of high school. My junior year of high school we were projected to win state but were disqualified in our best event due to a girl false starting and DQing our relay. That was heartbreaking for all of us but a great motivator for the following season where we just got faster and faster and now BT is on the radar for girls swimming. I am also very proud to have been apart of that.
I have been a swim coach for 2 years and spent this past summer as the head coach at Brookfield Country Club. I have 97 wonderful kids with their ages ranging from 4-14. They can be a handful but I love them dearly. I also love photography and I took classes through my high school and I could one day see myself working in a studio if all else fails. I am undecided on my major but I'm thinking about maybe doing Advertising or Marketing. My dream job would be to work for a major fashion company like Givenchy or Versace in Milan, Italy. I'm super excited to get involved in my sorority and club swimming here at KSU and hopefully I'll decide on a major sometime soon.
