Zoom Virtual Event

Catherine is a mother, business owner, native Texan, and lifelong practitioner of common sense.

What became a full-time call to grassroots activism started in 2008, when she could no longer watch silently as government acted in stark contrast to America’s principles of personal liberty and economic freedom.

In 2009 she started True the Vote, a citizen-led effort to restore honor and integrity to our electoral system. True the Vote educates voters, trains and mobilizes citizens to work at the polls, researches the veracity of voter rolls, and advocates for election code reform. True the Vote is now the nation’s leading voters’ rights organization.

Catherine believes when government isn't held accountable, it inevitably abuses the rights of American citizens. So, when she learned the Internal Revenue Service was targeting her organization and others, Catherine stood her ground and took action. In 2013, True the Vote embarked on a precedent-setting lawsuit against the IRS and its top leadership, leading to a historic victory in 2019.

A nationally recognized spokesperson on voters’ rights and free speech, Catherine has appeared on television and talk radio, testified before Congress and state legislatures, and spoken to grassroots activists across the nation. She has received national recognition for her work with True the Vote, including the CPAC Ronald Reagan award, the Horowitz Foundation Annie Taylor award, the Breitbart Stand With award, along with dozens of state and local organization commendations for leadership and strength under fire.

A graduate of the University of Houston, with a B.A. in Marketing, Catherine lives on her farm in Cat Spring, Texas with her two children, William and Elizabeth.
