About Katie

Katie is currently pursuing an A.S. at Front Range Community College, with plans of pursuing a bachelor’s in Environmental Science. During the Geo-Launchpad Program Katie digitized the United States Geological Survey’s (USGS) extensive collections of historic photography and scientific field records to preserve materials and make them more accessible online to researchers and the public. Katie’s dream is to help create a process of sustainable agricultural that can feed the growing population while still being environmentally conscious.
