Catherine Walsh

RSPCA ACT Board Member

Catherine has grown up with dogs as an integral part of her family and her involvement with the RSPCA ACT is an extension of this life-long love of animals. Cooper is her 8-year-old companion and they have been together since Catherine moved to Canberra in 2009.

As a great supporter of the community, Catherine is involved in a number of local organisations, including as an emergency services volunteer and Divisional Advisory Board member of the Red Cross in the ACT; the Australian National Committee for UN Women and YWCA Canberra. Catherine has served the public her entire working life, including 14 years in the Royal Australian Air Force and subsequent Commonwealth Government experience across a number of research, analysis and liaison positions. Catherine has expertise in strategic influence, relationship management and creative problem solving.
