Katherine Baillie

Concentration: Resource Management


Bachelor of Science, Biology, Haverford College; Master of Arts, Science Writing, Johns Hopkins University

“I am entering the Master of Environmental Studies program from a career in science writing and journalism. I’m currently a science news officer at Penn, where I write about and promote the groundbreaking research of the University’s faculty and students. Prior to joining Penn, I worked for five years as a writer and editor at The Wildlife Society, a professional organization that supports the work and development of wildlife biologists and managers. While in that position, I rediscovered my passion for conservation, and the seeds were planted for taking this next step in my education.

“My goal in the MES program is to obtain a solid grounding in the technical and practical foundations of environmental science and resource management, while building on my background in science and communication. With this training, I hope to graduate from Penn with the skills needed to be both a pragmatic and a visionary conservation practitioner.”
