Katie joined the LEP in May 2019 to take on the challenge of delivering an ambitious Local Energy Strategy for the region. An Environmental Science and Green Chemistry graduate, Katie had previously worked at the University of York in roles that facilitated research on environmental sustainability by matching up partners across different disciplines and sectors to work towards shared goals. Katie will continue to use her convening skills to bring innovators and traditionalists along together to accelerate the transition to a green economy.
Alongside her LEP role, Katie is the musical director of York’s friendliest choir, Cantar Community Choir, and enjoys getting out into the great Yorkshire countryside for a ramble and a pub lunch. She is also a proud owner of an evil cat and too many houseplants.
