She has more than twenty years of successful nonprofit, government and corporate management experience. Although she is not from Houston, because of Hurricane Katrina she arrived in Texas right in time to advocate and serve thousands of evacuees from New Orleans while serving as the Director of Governmental and Community Affairs for the Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana.

Known by many as a servant leader with moxie, Catherine is not afraid to serve as a catalyst for change. She was responsible for creating and managing the Department of Neighborhoods for the City of Houston. She created the community engagement plan for the Houston Super Bowl 51 Host Committee. She was instrumental in engaging thousands of uninsured Texans to ensure their access to health-care through the Affordable Care Act. She has created schools, affordable housing and other various opportunities for communities throughout Texas and Louisiana. Ms.Flowers has raised millions in capital for constituents. She also works closely with decision makers throughout the community representing nonprofit organizations, national and local government, and small businesses. Catherine’s advocacy and influence assists in building long-term capacity to provide direct services to communities in need.

Although she has served a gamut of clients, her true passion is advocating for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Currently, the word ‘inspire’ is the focus of her vision board. She serves as a board member of several nonprofit organizations. She is a Bee Keeper and her long term mission is: to win the USTA singles championship in the eighty-year-old division.
