Cathy is thrilled to be a part of the McCabe Russell Family. As the Chief of Staff, she handles client intake, human resources, marketing, firm operations, growth and strategic planning, the development of metrics, data analysis, special projects and events. On occasion she is also the firm’s Chef of Staff.

She is a proud graduate of the University of Maryland (Go Terps!) and has completed professional level studies in French culinary techniques.

Family, friends, food, entertaining, travel and reading are favorite pastimes. She is a proud and sometimes bossy big sister to her 5 brothers and sisters. She loves spending time with her nieces, nephew and cousins making special memories often centered around their favorite foods. Her best and favorite accomplishment is being married to her best friend Andrew for over 18 years.
