Catherine Campbell is a native Houstonian who has always been a dreamer with a Texas-sized heart. She dreamed of getting a Division I basketball scholarship in the third grade and accomplished that by accepting an offer to play at SMU where she received her corporate communications & public affairs degree in 2010. She traded her basketball shoes for immobile shoes attached to a boat where she rowed and received her masters in Sport Management at Indiana University.

Other positions at the University of Texas included assistant director of donor relations and events for The Longhorn Foundation, development assistant for the T-Association, marketing & sales representative at The Erwin Center and assistant director of marketing at Indiana University.
