Katy earned her B.S. in Earth and Environmental Science from the University of New Orleans in 2013. She did undergraduate research on Lake Pontchartrain, working closely with the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation, an advocacy organization for the Lake. She was a National Resource Management Intern at the Jean Lafitte National Historic Park and Preserve where she received federal certification as a motor boat operator and helped National Geographic lead its citizen science event.
While working for Kleinschmidt Associates as an Environmental Science Technician in Columbia, SC, Katy volunteered with the Congaree Riverkeeper, and was highly regarded for her volunteer work there. Katy moved to New Bern in August 2016 and lives just two blocks from the Neuse River in the historic Riverside district. She is an avid paddler and loves hiking and camping with her dog.
