Catherine was born and raised in a Christian home in Tri-Cities, Tennessee. She accepted Jesus Christ as Saviour at the age of 7, and made Him Lord of her life at the age of 10. As a young child she always heard about missions and wanted to be a missionary. In 2009, she went on her first mission trip to the Dominican Republic where she fell in love with the people, where God called her to missions, and realized that the States were no longer her home. She moved with her family to the Dominican Republic in January of 2013, at the age of 15. Catherine is now in full time ministry in the Dominican Republic where she is helping with Lily House/Human Trafficking Ministry and serves in the local Juan Dolio church.
