Early in her career, Cathy was a development officer at Harvard University and a management consultant with Bain & Company. Most recently, Cathy was Director of External Relations at the Snelling Center for Government in Burlington, Vermont, and Director of Development at Crossroads Academy, an independent K-8 school in Lyme, New Hampshire.

During her first go-around at Marts & Lundy from 1989-1998, Cathy worked with clients in Electronic Screening®, conducted campaign readiness, benchmarking and feasibility studies, introduced the Firm’s constituent survey service, and served as a member of the management team and the Board of Directors. In her new role with the Firm, Cathy is a senior consultant as well as part of the Analytical Solutions team, bringing an “in the trenches” perspective to its tools, services, and innovations.
