Kathleen has always had an interest in environmental science and sustainability even though it is not her primary field of study. Majoring in Integrative Studies with a concentration in Elementary Education, Kathleen became familiar with the Office of Sustainability through her work within New Century College. As an out-of-state student from Basking Ridge, New Jersey, Kathleen has made a name for herself on Mason’s campus. Not only does she maintain outstanding academics proven by her continued standing on the Dean’s List, but Kathleen is also active in several other organizations. She is on Alpha Xi Delta’s Executive Council as their Recording Secretary and is a part of their intramural volleyball team. Kathleen is also the Vice President of Mason’s Fashion Society and the Public Relations Coordinator for the Organic Gardening Association (GOGA). She is a member of many honors societies including Order of Omega, Alpha Lambda Delta, Lambda Sigma, and National Society of Collegiate Scholars. Following her undergraduate studies, Kathleen aspires to be admitted into Mason’s 5-year intensive Masters’ program in Elementary Education. Likewise, she seeks to pursue Certification in Special Education. Kathleen brings a new networking outlook to the Office with her many connections throughout the Mason community, which is critical to changing Mason’s culture to be more sustainable.
