Catherine focuses on leading creative teams that help people. She believes in using design skills for good and hopes to challenge others to do the same. At present Catherine leads a powerfully talented team of designers, researchers, and content strategists at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative who work passionately on improving our K-12 education system in the US.
Previously she was the Design Director at Foundation Medicine leading a team that designed for one of the world's biggest problems, cancer. She has also led research and design teams at the startup Quanttus, a wearable tech company in the cardiology space, and led a team of designers at a lab at MIT post-graduation. Tackling big problems that matter is what gets her out of bed in the morning.
