Olga Kachook is pursuing a Master’s of Environmental Management (MEM) at Yale University’s School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, where she focuses on whole-system sustainability strategies for businesses. Her most recent experience involved developing a sustainability strategy and online web platform for Cascade Designs, an outdoor gear manufacturer in Seattle, WA.
Prior to Yale, Olga spent several years working with a Seattle-based environmental consulting firm, primarily implementing resource conservation programs for the public sector. This involved researching and authoring reports on sustainability planning, sustainable consumption, and regional green business programs. Olga also participated in the design and implementation of several cutting-edge pilot programs that tested the effectiveness of community-based social marketing strategies on increasing recycling and composting at multifamily properties. In addition to consulting, Olga led an internal marketing and communications team of five people, including deliverables, day-to-day organization, and planning of marketing initiatives.
Olga graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and a minor in Environmental Studies.
