Manager of Programs
Cathy grew up in Paducah, Kentucky, and attended Murray State University and the University of Montevallo, graduating with a degree in Language Arts. Soon after college she married her best friend and the love of her life, Arlin, and together they have four beautiful children, each coming home to their family through adoption. In large measure, Cathy’s tenure at Show Hope began in response to the need to share stories about children impacted by a newly opening care center at the time—Maria’s Big House of Hope. Cathy now devotes her time to ensuring Show Hope’s voice stays consistent with its mission, supporting Care Centers staff, and creatively advocating on behalf of children who come into our care in China so that the best long-term outcome possible can be obtained for each child.
