Katie is the Rita Barron Fellow at CRWA, and coordinates the volunteer monthly monitoring program.
Katie received her B. A. and M.S. in Biology from Clark University where she studied the effects of anthropogenic nitrate runoff on salt marshes within the Plum Island Sound. Since graduate school she has dedicated two years to AmeriCorps service, running science and engineering after-school programs in Cambridge, MA, and engaging local communities in citizen science research along the tidal Hudson River Estuary in NY. After moving back to the Boston area, she explored the regulatory processes involved in wetlands conservation at the City of Boston's Environment Department.
Katie grew up along the banks of the Hudson River and continues to be drawn to river ecosystems wherever she travels. She’s excited to expand her background in watershed science and dive into water quality research as the Rita Barron Fellow.
