Mary Catherine was born and raised in Baltimore and graduated from Notre Dame with a Bachelors in Architecture. She also received a minor in medieval studies and a concentration in furniture design. While there Mary Catherine spent a year in Rome having many opportunities to travel with studios, grants and summer programs. When she isn’t traveling or building furniture in the wood shop, she likes to read, play guitar and piano, and enjoy all things related to music and writing. Mary Catherine is a professed anglophile and pretty thrilled there is a Ralph Adams Cram designed church in town. She had never been to Alabama before starting in the Montgomery McALPINE office and is excited to be the first full time Notre Dame addition to the McALPINE family.
