Kathy manages the CU-Boulder Green Labs Program, a program she has been building & creating since 2009. She has a doctorate in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Colorado-Boulder, a BS in Chemistry from the College of William and Mary, and 15 years of laboratory research experience within the fields of Biochemistry, Analytical Chemistry, & Organic Chemistry.
Working as a research scientist, she saw a real need for a program to engage scientists in conservation. With the birth of her twin daughters & her hope for their future, grew her passion to promote change & create a program focused on resource conservation in labs which could serve as a model for other campuses to adopt.
Kathy’s action on climate change and conservation do not stop at work, but also is an important part of her personal life as a community member, citizen, and mother. With life’s abundance of opportunities, she does what she can to act each day, especially for system changes, and to inspire others to act as well.
