Katie’s work as the Toxics and Stormwater Policy Manager centers on advancing equitable environmental policies that reduce toxics and stormwater impacts on water, wildlife, and people. Her previous work as a Sea Grant Fellow at the Port of Seattle focused on development and implementation of nearshore habitat restoration and enhancement programs in the Duwamish River and Elliott Bay. She holds a master’s degree in Marine and Environmental Affairs and a Graduate Certificate in Climate Science from the University of Washington as well as a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science from Western Washington University. Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest, she feels lucky to work at the intersection of science and environmental justice to build strong policy in Washington. In her free time, she enjoys skiing, yoga, traveling, and spending time with her nieces and nephews.
