At a young age she traveled with her mother by ocean liner and train from Australia to Mobile, Alabama, to reunite with her father after World War II. The family later moved to Gretna, Louisiana. Catherine earned her degree in Education at the University of New Orleans and after teaching English Literature at L.W. Higgins High School for some years, she then decided to return to school at Loyola University to study law. Catherine earned her Juris Doctorate degree from Loyola and began a Civil Law practice in Gretna shortly thereafter; beginning what would be a long career of selfless service, helping others in their time of need.

Over the next four decades Catherine worked as a successful and respected attorney, helping innumerable individuals and families with a wide variety of legal issues.
