Kathy Czepiel

Lands Communications Specialist

kczepiel@savethesound.org

Kathy joined Save the Sound in February 2022 to communicate the stories of our conservation campaigns across the Long Island Sound region and support the work of our Lands and Legal teams.

She has worked as a journalist, public relations professional and educator. Most recently, she served as associate editor of Daily Nutmeg magazine in New Haven and taught for nearly two decades in the First-Year Writing Program at Quinnipiac University in Hamden. She is also a published novelist and writer of short fiction. She holds an MA in English literature from New York University.

Kathy’s concern for the environment has its roots in New York State’s Hudson River Valley, where she was raised. She and her family have lived in Connecticut since 2002 and, two decades later, keep finding new places here to hike, bike, paddle, and explore.
