Sound Rivers Staff

Katey Zimmerman


Katey graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in sustainability and coastal resilience from Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina. Her background includes running the Swim Guide program for the Waccamaw Riverkeeper and coordinating outreach events, teaching children and adults about the watershed and how to protect it.

Originally from Pennsylvania, just north of Philadelphia, Katey was drawn to Coastal Carolina University’s outstanding marine sciences program. After taking a sustainability class as a freshman, her interest shifted, and when Coastal Carolina added a sustainability major the following year, her major did too. But it was when she began working with the Waccamaw Riverkeeper, that she truly found her calling.

Katey officially joined the Sound Rivers team on Sept. 19, and immediately began exploring the river and the issues facing it.
