Cathy is a graduate of the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. Her first job was as a political reporter for the Miami Herald. She then studied religion and American culture at the University of Michigan. She has always had a fascination with true believers and visions and values that shape human choices and actions. She joined USA Today in 1989 as the religion and ethics reporter.
Cathy was among the first ten recipients of the Templeton-Cambridge Journalism Fellowship in Science and Religion. As a Fellow she attended seminars for two Weeks at the University of Cambridge followed by five weeks of independent study.

Cathy will discuss her experience as a Templeton-Cambridge Fellow. She will describe how the program affected her and the other journalists and how they translated their observations to their readership.
