Aspiring Ethical Hacker

Hey, there! Welcome to my website! My name is Catherine, and I am an engineer with a passion for Cybersecurity. I have a B.S. in Physics from the University of Maryland, as well as an M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. I spent multiple summers in undergrad working at Fermi National Accelerator Lab on the Mu2e project, where I spent time programming FPGA's for the detector, and designing PCB's to be used for data collection for temperature and radiation inside the detector. I went to Carnegie Mellon to pursue a Masters and specialize in circuits and signals, but by chance, or a stroke of luck, I took some computer security courses my first semester, and fell in love. After what felt like the longest year of my head in the books, I graduated, and was given an offer to work on the Offensive Security team of a large financial company. Working on this team has been amazing and given me the chance to learn from some talented colleagues, and pursue my mission of becoming a full time ethical hacker!

Outside of the world of Cybersecurity, I love to run, bake, and travel! While I never had much interesting in racing, I love trail running, and have spent many days running and exploring national parks. My favorite trip was to Canyonlands, near Moab, UT. The views were incredible, and even though I went in the middle of January, it was absolutely beautiful, and just the right temperature for an adventure! I have future plans to train for an R2R2R trip through the Grand Canyon, but a series of injuries has set me back pretty far. I'll get there eventually! As for baking, I have grand dreams of opening up my own bakery one day, but for now, I'll stick to practicing! I have a wonderful family down south in the beautiful country of New Zealand, and while I'd love to travel all over the world, my favorite place will always be my second home.


I'd love your feedback!
