Kat (she/her) grew up in Ontario where she studied Biology at Queen's University, and Environmental Management and Assessment at Niagara College. Her passion for environmental conservation was ignited while working in Costa Rica and the Peruvian Rainforest, where she researched and educated tourists about butterflies, reptiles, and amphibians. Since returning back to Canada, Kat has continued to merge her love for exploring the natural environment and connecting with the community, by leading youth programs and school groups in outdoor education and stewardship activities.
