byron bay | Activ8 for the ocean Coordinator
Growing up on the California coast, Katie developed a love of the ocean at a young age. Whether swimming, diving, kayaking, boating, or surfing, she’s always happy on the water. She has a combined degree in anthropology, geography, and biology to pursue her passions for conservation, travel, and how people affect the earth. Since then she has worked in the fields of ecotourism and environmental education, with the hope of instilling in people a love for nature and desire to protect it.
Katie has always been drawn to Australia - the kangaroos, Opera House, Tim Tams, and of course the coastlines! From thousands of miles (or she should now say kilometers) away, she has studied the global importance of Australia’s marine ecosystems and the necessity to protect them. She moved to Byron Bay in October and is so happy to be a member of the Activ8 for the Ocean campaign team to do just that!
