Land Protection Manager
Kathy manages Save the Sound’s endangered lands projects in Connecticut, including the movement to create Six Lakes Park on the “Olin Powder Farm” in Hamden; the drive to save 236 acres in the Oswegatchie Hills on the Niantic River from development; and the conservation of open space land owned by The Metropolitan District in northwest Connecticut. Her work involves managing coalitions, developing land policies, and advocating for open space and drinking water lands. She first joined Save the Sound in February 2022 as a communications specialist supporting the work of our lands and legal teams.
Kathy has worked as a journalist, public relations professional, and longtime educator. Her 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.
