This month we're thrilled to welcome Katie Rousseau to the GLOS staff.
Katie is an advocate for the Great Lakes. She comes to us having served as the director of Clean Water Supply in the Great Lakes for American Rivers, an effort that advocates for stormwater and drinking water infrastructure policy issues as well as green infrastructure projects.
A Toledo native, Katie has served in numerous roles to support watershed health, including as co-chair of the Healing Our Waters Great Lakes Coalition. She has a M.A. in geography from the University of Toledo and a B.S. in education from Ohio University. She lives in Waterville, Ohio (near Toledo), with her husband and two children.
In her new position as Smart Great Lakes Liaison, Katie is bringing her deep understanding of the region and its water-related organizations to work building partnerships to form a Smart Great Lakes coalition.
More on Smart Great Lakes soon.
