Community Service

One of Catherine's earliest memories is helping her mother canvas their neighborhood in Indianapolis, mobilizing against attempts to segregate their very diverse neighborhood through targeted home sales ('redlining'). Growing up, she helped alongside her family as they volunteered for the League of Women Voters, worked to help establish the Charles C. Deam Wilderness, and dedicated time and energy to other causes.   

As an adult, Catherine has built on that strong foundation, including serving as a board member in many local arts and social services nonprofits and on city and county commissions. She is proud to be a founding board member of Navigators of Monroe County, our local chapter of a national scouting group open to all children regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or religious status.
