Katherine Shyi (also goes by "Kat") graduated from Antioch University and earned her bachelors degree in liberal arts. She then joined DIRT Corps to learn about green infrastructure. At DIRT Corps she learned how to build, design, and maintain rain gardens and cisterns. Kat became drawn to both these green systems because of the practicality, beauty, and ecological benefits. She also loves working with native plants in her design.
When she's not working on cisterns and rain gardens, she works part-time at a local nursery called Go Natives!, tends to her container garden, likes to go out dancing, and of course... hanging out with her cat Bandit (not pictured)!
