Kate oversees training programs for the Center for Behavior & the Environment. During her time at Rare she has facilitated cross-functional teams that developed trainings resulting in over 180 behavior change campaigns in 26 countries. She also enjoys working with partners to evaluate whether a behavior change approach is the right fit for their conservation strategies and designing events that encourage sharing of bright spots within the conservation community.
Kate holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Bates College and a MSc. in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management from the University of Oxford.
You might find Kate at a trailhead in the Cascades doing avalanche outreach for backcountry skiers or setting out on a long-distance backpacking trip. The one behavior she’d like to change would be having three more behavior changes (improving voter turn-out, paying teachers the salaries of tech workers, and replacing screen time with green time outside).
