Stanley Joins KRC Staff
Kaitlin was raised in the mountains and plains of Colorado where she developed a deep love of her natural surroundings. She attended Colorado State University and studied natural resources and anthropology. After completing her undergraduate studies, Kaitlin helped operate Highchair Farms, a small farm that prioritized making nutritious baby food accessible and economically viable. She worked with local producers to launch a small meat collective that offered workshops and connected farmers to their community. Kaitlin moved to Kansas in 2016 to attend graduate school at the University of Kansas where she continued her studies in anthropology and focused on using an archaeological lens to view how changes in climate impact human food systems. She is passionate about working with youth to find creative solutions for communicating science-based information and has had the opportunity to do so from the Great Plains to the Arctic Tundra. In East Lawrence, Kaitlin built and coordinates an interactive native plant learning garden that also provides community members with access to free produce from vegetable beds. She will be bringing all of these experiences to KRC to help coordinate our Farm to School programs and our Integrated Voter Engagement project.
