Cat joined the 40th Ward office in July 2023 after serving as the Director of Community Outreach for Cook County Commissioner Bridget Degnen. She is a Lincoln Square resident and is proud to call the 40th Ward home. She is thrilled by the opportunity to continue making the 40th Ward the best place to live in the City.

Cat is deeply passionate about nature and environmental education. She is a volunteer canoe guide with Friends of the Chicago River, a Chicago Conservation Corps alumna, and has organized LaBagh Woods’ annual Fall Nature Fest for the last three years. She hopes to share that enthusiasm with the Ward to advocate for a greener City.
