Catherine obtained a BA in History & Politics with First Class Honours at the University of Leicester before completing the LLB at UCL, where she achieved the highest mark in her cohort for Family Law.

She regularly participated in mooting (mock court) competitions and plans to incorporate advocacy into her practice as a solicitor.
A client quoted "Catherine’s forensic attention to detail was astounding, which coupled with her support and encouragement throughout, meant a great deal to me. I not only had excellent legal representation, but a warm and compassionate woman alongside me at every step."
