Hi, my name is Kate. I’m passionate about environmental issues, and while I work for an environmental agency, I’d like to get more involved at a grassroots level. While the city has its attractions, I'm a nature girl at heart. I get outdoors when I can, which usually means hiking, but sometimes I'll just sit and draw or read (mostly nonfiction). I also enjoy experimenting with new vegetarian recipes and listening to blues and folk music. I can be equally serious or silly, adventurous, funny, and reflective. I love to travel and will go almost anywhere, given the opportunity.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Regulate carbon dioxide emissions, change food policy and end subsidies for junk food/crops.
What/who changed my life and why
My geography professor in college, a wonderfully intelligent and adventurous person. I learned about the importance of exploring the planet we live on, and reaching one's own potential. I'm finally making a career change and following her footsteps.
