Hi everyone! My name is Katie and I am a rising Sophomore at Colby College. I was born and raised in Rye, New Hampshire and spent much of my childhood exploring New Hampshire and Maine. I am very lucky to have experienced many of the wonderful outdoor opportunities Maine has to offer including skiing at Sugarloaf Mountain, sailing from Boothbay to Bar Harbor, hiking in Baxter State Park, and biking in Acadia. Because of this I am very excited to be working with the AMC and the Maine Outdoor Coalition on the Great Maine Outdoor Weekend. I look forward to helping get people outside and exploring everything Maine has to offer.
At Colby I am studying Environmental Science and Economics. I am also the Vice President of the Women’s Rugby Team and a member of the Colby Alliance for Renewable Energy. After Colby I hope to have a career in the field of conservation, working to stop the destruction and pollution of the world’s natural landscapes and habitats, and protecting the plants and animals that share our planet.
Over the summer leading up to the Fall GMOW I will be helping to promote and support events on social media. I will also being helping with outreach and event planning across the state. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing project and look forward to helping organize another wonderful weekend the celebrates the beautiful State of Maine.
