F. Ervin, Director of Marketing
After completing her plebe year in 1995 at the United
States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, Catherine decided that the Navy
didnt have the career positions that interested her, so she decided
to resign and enter the teaching profession. She attended Salisbury State
University in Maryland and received a degree in teaching. Catherine then
moved to New Mexico where she taught at a Navajo Reservation Catholic
mission for a year. She returned to Maryland and started her own outdoor
education school for children on a part-time basis. After enjoying success
as an independent teacher, Catherine made the transition and joined the
team at Lindsay Bruce Ervin, Inc.
Catherine is a naturally talented artist and a gifted
writer. Her talents have allowed her to address the companys marketing
needs. She has prepared various individual company promotional products
plus helped design the company brochure and logo. Her article Wild
and Crazy was published in the April 2000 issue of the Washington
Golf Monthly. The piece focused on several golf course architects, Lindsay
Bruce Ervin included, who were asked to design a wild fantasy
golf hole. Catherine came up with the waterfall theme and
created some unique golf holes using her computer skills to combine waterfalls
with holes from our golf courses. She continues to add refreshing new
ideas for the marketing needs of Lindsay Bruce Ervin, Inc.
