    Kat Davis

    Sustainability Coordinator

    I grew up in Boise with a passion for engaging people in causes to benefit a greater good. I was the kid you would see stand up on a soapbox calling people to action. Right after high school, I left Idaho to attend the University of Colorado, Boulder where I received a bachelor’s degrees in both Environmental Studies and Geography, as well as a certificate in Public Health. After graduating, I worked in the local Boulder government at the City and then County level and harnessed my drive for community engagement to assist businesses with waste reduction and diversion, as well as other sustainability services.

    At heart, I am an artist and am always looking for ways to connect creativity to my work. In my free time, I paint, hike, enjoy games of all sorts, and play the bass guitar. I recently moved back to Boise to help out my family and reconnect with the place I’ve always called home. I am excited for the opportunity to help Boise State become a leader in sustainability, as well as to offer my skills to give back to this great community.
