Katie Tozier, of KIT West Designs, grew up north of Yosemite National Park in California, where her parents taught her to canoe, camp, and explore the outdoors. Throughout her youth, Katie's family visited National Parks in the Western US and Canada, motivating her to pursue her Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Science and Management from UC Davis.
During her summers home from college, Katie worked for the US Forest Service on the Stanislaus National Forest. Afterward, she went on to earn her Master's in Education focused on Environmental Education from Western Washington University and the North Cascades Institute. Her time in the northwest taught her to slow down and appreciate our intricate and personal connections to the natural world. Katie has fond memories of working seasonally in North Cascades and Mesa Verde National Parks as an Interpreter.
Since 2013 she has enjoyed working in Grand Teton National Park as an Educator, Interpreter, and now Secretary to the Superintendent's Office. Despite the overwhelming challenges posed by global climate change, Katie finds hope in the power of environmental education and intends to help foster positive environmental stewardship and responsible resource use in the years to come.
Currently, Katie enjoys watercoloring, watching good movies, and living in Wilson, WY with her partner, Colby.
