Cathy Braunlin

Cathy has lived and worked in many places across the U.S., including Chicago, San Francisco, and Oakland. Her work has spanned multiple fields, including finance, teaching, landscaping, and entrepreneurship – she operated a pizza restaurant for five years! She earned a second bachelor’s degree from CSU in Horticulture, with a concentration in Landscape Design and Contracting.

Cathy came to work at CSU in 2016 and wishes she had done it sooner. “I love the camaraderie among students and employees. I love how vibrant the campus is and the feeling of promise and positivity that permeates everything.” Cathy looks forward to helping students navigate the admissions process and make it a little easier (and maybe even fun) for them.
