As a proud member of a law enforcement family, it is with honor and happiness that Catie found her future husband, Brian, while both working for the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. Catie has two brothers, one of whom is a supervisor in the Border Patrol. Her paternal grandfather was a police officer in White Plains, NY and her maternal grandfather was a U.S. Customers Inspector.
