Her effective leadership on behalf of District 2 residents earned her the respect of the City Administrator and Mayor who in 2016 asked her to be San Francisco’s County Clerk. There, she revamped the office to improve overall customer service, increased the availability of materials in multiple languages and remodeled the outdated ceremony room. Under Catherine’s leadership, the County Clerk’s office implemented major department efficiencies and increased the number of transactions by 27.5% and overall revenue by 5.7%.

She was on the board of directors of the Homeless Prenatal Program for six years and has raised over $50,000 to fight leukemia by competing in triathlons.

She won an “Ignite Honors” award in 2016 for “consistently putting her beliefs into action, engaging and mentoring other women and transforming her community.”
