Education and Volunteer Coordinator

Kate’s career in Environmental Education began with an internship at Grey Towers National Historic Site in Milford, PA. While working as an interpretive tour guide, she discovered a love of public speaking and education, with a focus on conservation and resource management. Building on this experience, Kate went on to a seasonal position as a Teacher Naturalist at YMCA Camp Mason, followed by two years of National Service as an AmeriCorps member at the New Jersey School of Conservation. While at the SOC, Kate participated in several field studies with the New Jersey DEP Division of Endangered and Nongame Species, including several turtle population surveys, and population monitoring of the endangered Allegheny Woodrat. Prior to joining the Conservancy, Kate was a Park Naturalist with the Ocean County Department of Parks & Recreation.
Kate has a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies with a minor in Studio Art from Ursinus College.
