Born and growing up initially in a small town in Virginia, Catherine developed a passion for modeling and photography early on.
Beginning in high school, Catherine enrolled in the Arlington Career Center's program for photography. She took IB Art for two years, and received four gold keys in the Scholastic Arts & Writing competition her senior year.
In 2011, she enrolled at the Columbus College of Art and Design. Unhappy with the curriculum there, she transferred to Columbus State Community College, where she acquired an associates degree in digital photography.
Catherine owns and operates Aimei Photography in Columbus, which she established based on her degree. With some friends of hers, she created the "COI-Stock" account on DeviantArt, a popular source for free images from her portfolio.
On February 24th of 2015, Catherine's "Portrait Shot 4" was modified to make her resemble Hea Pang, as part of a campaign to give photographic appearances to as many Gerosha characters as possible while Sodality: Vindication was being planned. She has remained the default model to portray Hea since, in spite being a few inches taller than Hea is supposed to be.
