Born on September 8, 1961, in Truro, Nova Scotia, she was a daughter of George and Shirley (Teed) Walsh.
Cathy graduated from Kennebecasis Valley High School in 1979, and then continued her education at Mount St. Vincent University graduating in 1983 with a Bachelor of Child Study. After graduating, Cathy worked as a Supply Teacher at Lakefield and Fairvale Elementary schools. Cathy loved helping others with their schooling, which inspired her to become a tutor after her profession in teaching. She enjoyed knitting, crocheting, playing cards, being outside, travelling and baking. She enjoyed her time up country on the Washademoak Lake and at the cottage in Bouctouche.
