Katrina is an Associate Planner currently working part-time on transportation planning and coordination projects. Prior to SWWRPC, Katrina worked as a project coordinator for the Gardiner Gateway Project for Yellowstone National Park and Park County, Montana. Her major role was the liaison between local,
state and federal agencies for the planning, funding, design and construction of a multi-million dollar project working across jurisdictional boundaries to restore and enhance access to the original and only year-round entrance to the world’s first national park – Yellowstone National Park.
Katrina earned her Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering with a minor in math from Seattle University and her MSCE with a focus in transportation from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. While in Seattle, she began her almost 10 year-long stint with KPG, Inc., a local multidisciplinary engineering firm. She designed and managed highway, roadway, and downtown revitalization projects from proposal through construction. Katrina became a Professional Engineer in the State of Washington while working at KPG and is currently working towards registration in Wisconsin.
During her graduate work, Katrina worked with UMassSafe (safety data warehouse) developing state police GIS crash maps; provided Commercial Motor Vehicle education, enforcement and engineering countermeasures; ran the FHWA Summer Transportation Institute for two years; and developed and taught a collegiate level Intro to AutoCAD class at UMass Amherst.
In her free time, she loves finding adventures with her four boys and husband (especially in public lands!), cooking worldly cuisine, relaxing at home and playing in the yard.
