Operations Manager, Evergreen Advantage


Catherine began as one of Summit Properties’ community managers, managing the Pines Senior Living Community. After managing the Pines for eight years, Catherine was ready for a new challenge. In 2008, she transitioned to Operations Manager at Summit’s subsidiary company, Evergreen Advantage, a telephone and cable television provider where she oversees all services offered to our senior housing properties. Other parts of her job include accounts payable for all properties and training new community managers in our property management software MRI.

Prior to joining Summit Properties, Catherine was the District Business Manager for the Great Lakes District of Cray Research in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She also spent three years in the advertising field as a media buyer for McCann-Erickson in San Francisco and J. Walter Thompson in Washington, D.C.

Catherine graduated Magna Cum Laude from Trinity College as a non-traditional student and served on the Vermont Real Estate Commission as a public member from 1997 to 1998. She enjoys gardening in addition to taking long walks and snow shoeing with her black lab, Livvy. Although she has lived in Burlington since 1989, Catherine continues to cheer for her hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers!
