read my bio

Catherine joined the GAA in Sept. 2016. She loves connecting faculty with alumni and the community. As an alumna of UNC and native of Chapel Hill, she’s thrilled to represent UNC and the alumni community through her work. Catherine enjoys spending time on campus with her family and traveling at any opportunity. She also enjoys movies, biking and reading.

Dinner (and lunch) With Faculty gives GAA members the opportunity to dine and discuss issues with UNC faculty in a small-group setting, limited to 11 guests and a popular UNC faculty member. Free-ranging discussion is encouraged. This is the one opportunity where discussing religion and politics at the dinner table is perfectly acceptable.
