Greetings all! My name is Katie Schooter, I’m majoring in Environmental Studies at Santa Barbara City College and I plan on transferring to UC Santa Barbara. I’m from the Central Coast in California, specifically a very small “pit-stop town” called Buellton within the Santa Ynez Valley. I spend a lot of my free time outdoors, at the beach, and making artwork! I feel lucky to have grown up in such a biodiverse area of California and that is the very thing that drives me towards a career in Coastal Conservancy/Environmental Education. It breaks my heart to see the effects that climate change has on the California Coast and how much biodiversity has been lost from over-development. This is what fuels my passion to help protect the planet for future generations. As for right now, I am extremely stoked to be apart of the Voiz Team! I look forward to learning more about how sustainability can be incorporated into all business and the ways to approach change effectively, for the sake of our planet!
