Catherine “Cat” Gordon earned her BA in Human Development and Child Study in 2009 and her M. Ed in School Counseling from Stephens College in 2012. She spent nearly 11 years working for the University of Missouri-Columbia in various student-facing roles. The last 5 years, she worked as a liaison between the School of Health Sciences and a federally funded Student Support Services program, TRiO, which serves underrepresented student populations. During her time as an academic advisor, Cat helped many students navigate the college environment, as well as Graduate and Professional programs. Previously, during her time at Mizzou, she worked to create and implement a student success program tailored to the academic needs of first- and second-year students within the School of Health Sciences. 

She is delighted to be joining the School of Journalism Advising team. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with my four fur babies, kayaking, cooking and bowling, and is a long-standing member of the Mid-Missouri Community Orchestra as a violinist.
