About Catherine

Catherine joined BTNL as an Associate in 2020 after graduating from law school and practices in the areas of litigation and environmental law. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation from Mississippi State University, summa cum laude, and her law degree from the University of Mississippi School of Law, cum laude.

While in law school, Catherine had the unique opportunity to serve on several student groups and programs. She argued on UM Moot Court Board’s Gaming Law Advocacy Team for two years, gaining vital advocacy skills at the podium and on paper. Additionally, she served as the Executive Editor of the Mississippi Sports Law Review, was a member of Dean’s Leadership Counsel, and acted as a Guardian ad Litem representing the interests of children involved in family violence actions. Catherine also was published in the Gaming Law Review for her article addressing some of the environmental concerns facing today’s gaming industry.

From these varied experiences, Catherine learned the value of flexibility, efficiency, and problem solving. Catherine carries an appreciation for the challenges of modern-day environmental law and regulation she gained in pursuit of her Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation undergraduate degree, as well as the get-up-and-go readiness required in the face of litigation.

“The summer before beginning law school, a former Mississippi Supreme Court Justice told me, ‘Grinders win; don’t you forget it.’ I thought about that statement and what it really meant to a law student and budding attorney; ‘grinders win’ means that with fierce drive, dedication, and determination to get the job done, success will soon follow. Since that day ‘grinders win’ has been my motto, mantra, and method to tackling whatever life throws at me.”
