About Me Hi, my name is Kate. Im passionate about environmental issues, and while I work for an environmental agency, Id 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.
