Catherine Ann "Cathy" Hearn-Röthenmund (born June 1, 1958) is an American slalom kayaker who competed from the late 1970s to the early 2000s (decade).

She won ten medals at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships with two golds (K-1: 1979, K-1 team: 1979), three silvers (K-1: 1981, K-1 team: 1989, 1993), and five bronzes (K-1: 1989, 1997, K-1 team: 1977, 1981, 1987).

Hearn also competed in two Summer Olympics, earning her best finish of seventh in the K-1 event in Atlanta in 1996.

As of 2009, Hearn serves as a coach for the United States canoe slalom team.
