Catie has worked at the intersection of law enforcement, mental health, substance use disorder, and homelessness, and is committed to a vision for public safety where police use arrest sparingly and equitably, where those in crisis receive the help that they need without fear of punitive responses, and where funding and policy support safe and healthy communities.

Her experience also includes a short stint in the City of Austin Mayor’s office, as well as positions in marketing, public relations, and program management.
