Catherine's Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication from North Carolina State University and her subsequent 9 years of work in sitcom development provided a solid foundation for her more specific training in script supervising. The majority of that training came through Randi Feldman's Script Supervising for Film and Television class. Fifty-five hours of personalized instruction included lectures, demonstrations, filming exercises, quizzes, weekly assignments and three days of simulated scripting using film dailies. Following the basic class, Catherine took additional courses with Randi on Script Supervising Visual Effects and Digital Script Supervising.
Catherine also trained with Jennifer Reed and Jonathan Levit in Script Supervising for Sitcoms.
