Katy has a master's in landscape architecture from the University of Washington. She wrote her MLA thesis focused on health design and therapeutic landscapes with Project LIFE as her case study. Katy became involved with the project and Crater Creations through her internship with CITITEK.
Her educational background is in environmental design and she has previously worked with both the International Living Future Institute and Birdlife International. What drives her work as the team's lead designer and landscape architect is a focus on community and environmental health so critical to this project. She sees herself as a collaborator, helping to facilitate the co-creation process and giving voice to all members in the development of thriving communities.
Katy's projects have taken her to the Fiji Islands, Croatia, Denmark and now Kenya. She loves immersing herself in new cultures and exploring the outdoors. You can usually spot her happily riding her pink bike around town.
