Catherine Abrams fondly remembers attending her first concerts - James Brown, the Jackson 5, and the Richmond Symphony Orchestra - as a young girl growing up in Central Virginia. In school, Catherine wrote poetry, studied music, and played the clarinet in performances for the concert and marching bands. Still passionate about music, she has broadened her interests to include film, theater, television, travel, sports, and literature.
She earned a liberal arts degree from the University of Virginia before earning her law degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law, where she was President of the Entertainment, Art, and Sports Law Association. As a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, she is involved in the Arts and Letters Committee, which showcases talent in the visual, performing, and literary arts for the cultural enrichment of the community.
Catherine currently works for a financial services regulator. An enthusiastic volunteer, she enjoys helping others in her Washington, DC community, and is an ardent advocate for optimum health and fitness.
