In 2013 she accepted a 15 month secondment to assume the role of Project Manager of OCEANS’14. There she lead a Team of 22 local cluster members that organized the largest industry conference held in St. John’s, as well as one of the top three IEEE-MTS OCEANS events ever held in North America. Prior to her joining OA, Cathy worked as a consultant for the Provincial Department of Development and Rural Renewal as a Contract Administrator and Liaison between the Province and the National Research Council’s Industrial Research Assistance Program.
