Cathy believes that you’re never too old to pursue your passions. Growing up as the daughter of an Air Force LtCol Chaplin stationed at VAFB, Cathy’s love for exploration and adventure was instilled in her from a young age. She graduated from Enid High School, where she was actively involved in music, track, and theater, even taking on the lead role in their HS musical, “The Music Man.”
Afterward, Cathy moved to Iceland, where she continued her education and pursued her love for singing. Eventually, she returned to the United States, attending Oklahoma State University and studying music under Sonny VanEaton and Brad Nulph. It was during her time at OSU that she reconnected with her future husband, Brad Nulph, and later settled in Enid, Oklahoma.
She is a proud mother of three grown children, Nick, Holly, and Brock, and a loving grandmother to eight grandchildren. Throughout her life, she has remained deeply involved in the Enid community, serving as a former member of JWL and actively participating in local events. As an independent contractor, she has collaborated with Eagle Marketing and the Stride Bank Center for numerous projects, honing her skills in promotions and sales over 15 years.
Currently, Cathy serves as the Marketing and PR Coordinator at The Commons, where she passionately promotes the venue and its offerings. In addition to her professional pursuits, Cathy’s lifelong love for music has been a constant companion. She started singing in church at the age of three and continues to perform, having opened for Terri Clark alongside her good friend Kelly Killam and performed with renowned artists like Doc Bryant and Clarence Clemons of the E Street Band.
For over a decade, Cathy has been playing with her talented friends Dave Roberts, Kegan Tuohy, and Kelly Killam in various music groups, including the Doc Bryant Jazz Band, Catfink, The Bringing Back Band, and their current endeavor, Dually Noted. Specializing in 70’s and 80’s cover songs, their performances are always filled with energy and joy. They perform at corporate gigs, private parties, and various events, recently earning the Readers Choice Most Popular Local Band award.
Outside of her professional and musical pursuits, Cathy stays involved in the community through her grandchildren’s dance and sports activities, as well as her husband’s involvement with Ambucs. She cherishes Enid as a wonderful community that has played a significant role in her life and continues to inspire her.
