Katie is a Joint MBA-MEM Candidate at the Yale Schools of Management and the Environment. She is interested in studying how people can take care of the places where they live and each other, particularly through the lenses of land conservation and local food system development. She plans to continue to work in the intersections between land conservation, land stewardship, and supporting resilient working lands businesses.

She most recently called Vermont home, where she worked at the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board and the High Meadows Fund. She has also taught a college course about Vermont's food system and farmers, wrote a case study about Middlebury’s conservation of its Bread Loaf campus, and served as Vice President of the board of her local food cooperative. She has a B.A. in Geography and Environmental Studies from Middlebury College.

In her free time, Katie enjoys spending time outdoors, gardening, and cooking.
