Catherine LaBerta is a Full Professor in the Computer Science/Mathematics Department at Erie Community College in Buffalo, NY. She is also an adjunct professor at SUNY-Buffalo. Catherine teaches courses that range from Intro to Computers to Programming in C++ to Web Development. Originally a math major, Catherine took additional courses in computers and programming and found a field that clicked for her. She enjoys the constant changes in the computer and related fields as it forces one to keep up and constantly learn. Not a total book worm, she loves skiing in Purgatory, CO, one of her favorite spots. She also enjoys boating—especially schooner trips off the coast of Maine— and will always be working on that golf game.
