Cathy Reed was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Her mother is Japanese and her father is American. She was a dual citizen of Japan and the United States until she turned 22. Japanese law required those who are dual citizens at birth to relinquish their dual citizenship, so Cathy Reed chose Japanese citizenship at the age of 22 in order to continue to represent Japan in ice dancing. She competes in ice dancing with her younger brother Chris Reed. Her younger sister Allison Reed is also an ice dancer, who represented Georgia with Otar Japaridze and Israel with Vasili Rogov.
The Reeds are the 2006 U.S. Novice Dance Champions, but chose to represent Japan beginning in the 2006–2007 season. While Novice national champions are usually given a chance to compete on the Junior Grand Prix, Cathy Reed was too old at the time of their win to compete as a junior internationally. The Reeds were offered a chance to compete for Japan and they took it. They advanced immediately to the senior level, skipping Juniors entirely.
After advancing to the senior level, they placed fourth at the Golden Spin of Zagreb and second at the 2007 Japan Championships. At the 2007 Four Continents, they finished ahead of several teams who had been competing as seniors much longer.
At their Grand Prix debut, the 2007 Skate America, they placed 9th. They placed 8th at their second Grand Prix event, the 2007 NHK Trophy. They won the Japanese Championships. They repeated their 7th place finish at the Four Continents, and then placed 16th at the 2008 World Championships. They represented Japan at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
