Katie is the Technical and Administrative Assistant for the Tennessee Smart Yards program at the Tennessee Water Resources Research Center. She became a full time employee after completing two years as their AmeriCorps member. Katie has an extensive background in fine and graphic art and received a MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Her interest in environmental issues is evident in her artwork and the reason she became interested in the Tennessee Smart Yards program. She is excited to be able to use her graphic art background to help promote a program that teaches homeowners how to sustainably maintain their yards while also protecting the watershed.
