“Failure Is Not An Option.”
One of Cat’s favorite quotes, even though it was never technically “said” by anyone. However, it is also the title of NASA Flight Director Gene Kranz’s book and Cat HIGHLY recommends you read it. Cat’s strong interpersonal and professional drive has driven her to lean into the process of problem solving and collaborative work, all while learning something new in the process. With over 10 years of print and web design experience, Cat brings a unique blend of skills to the Red Thinking family.
Cat graduated from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) – Go Big Dawgs! – with her BA in Visual Arts and a Concentration in Graphic Design. While there she was part of the team to put together “Bartleby”, the school’s annual creative arts journal. After spending time at UMBC and the University of Maryland, Baltimore Cat has found her way to the scenic Eastern Shore of Maryland and helped small business build their brands and online presence.
When Cat isn’t reading books written by former Flight Directors, you can find her traveling the country visiting NASA’s retired Space Shuttle Orbiters (2 to go!), walking her two fur babies, or planning her next adventure. Any recommendations on where she should travel next?!

Most irrational fear or silly quirk about me
Am. So. Afraid. Of. Bugs. I know they’re important to the ecosystem, but yikes. Let’s just say if it were socially acceptable to walk around in a bee suit all day I would.
