- School of Design Studies
Katie has a B.S. in Journalism from Ohio University and has been writing about design for her entire career. Currently, Katie lives in Washington D.C. and oversees sustainability-related content for a major media company in the design, building, and construction realm.
Looking for a program that would allow her to keep her day job while studying within a flexible environment, Katie found the MDS in Sustainable Design. Katie was in search of a program that would help her transition from writing about sustainability to being a more of an active participant within the field. She is aiming to spend less time writing about the people changing our world and more time actively being one of those people.
"I want to help more people understand why it is critical to the future of our planet and ourselves that we adopt sustainability on a broad scale at a much faster pace. I plan on marrying my knowledge from the MDS-SD program with my experiences in communications to teach other sustainability professionals how to better craft and convey this message."
