Knoxville, Tennessee native Mary Catherine was discovered during her senior prom by a scout from IMG Models who happened to be at the same hotel for a fashion convention.
Although Mary Catherine initially intended to pursue a law degree upon graduation, she moved to New York City to model at the suggestion of her mother. She received her big break courtesy of a Coca-Cola commercial, and a series of campaigns for J. Crew.
Off-duty, Mary Catherine spends her free-time at Salinas, the popular New York City restaurant she co-owns with her husband.
