Katie is the Horticulture Program Coordinator at Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Brooklyn College in Urban Sustainability with a concentration in Environmental Science. During college Katie worked at a farm to table café in Bedford Stuyvesant and took an interest in food deserts and urban gardening. She worked as an assistant horticulture inspector for New York state department of agriculture in Suffolk County, an office working with the USDA to eradicate invasive species, specifically the Asian Long-Horned Beetle. In San Diego, she worked for the county as an agricultural standards inspector, working alongside farmers and industry to protect the county from incoming pests and disease.
Being somewhat new to Sullivan County, Katie is embracing rural life, and can be found seeking out stroller friendly hikes, gardening, making candles and exploring with her toddler.
