Senior Research Coordinator
Katherine grew up in a salmon farming family in coastal British Columbia and is still based in BC. She completed a bachelor’s degree in biology at the University of Victoria and a master’s in marine resources management from the University of Akureyri in Iceland. After graduation, Katherine worked with major Canadian grocers to improve sustainability within their seafood supply chains through collaboration with various North American NGOs, standards, and fisheries and aquaculture improvement projects. She then led Mowi Canada West’s certification program, which achieved 100% ASC certification in 2020. Outside of work, Katherine loves to explore the coast with her family by foot, bike, or boat, and is an avid baker, runner, and traveller.
