 Katy Bluhm

TYP Grant Coordinator / Education Support Specialist

 Hi! I am Katy. I’m a local girl having grown up in Skagit Valley. I stayed local for college by attending both Skagit Valley Community College and Western Washington University’s Huxley College of the Environment. I studied Environmental Conservation and Science at Skagit and Environmental Education at Huxley.
Throughout college I was lucky enough to have jobs that ranged from being the secretary in the environmental department at Skagit to a sea kayak instructor for a local camp empowering high school students to feel comfortable in nature. I was also privileged to participate in Canoe Journey Paddle to Quinault as my Huxley College internship with the Samish Indian Nation. I look forward to working with the Education Department and all of the Stillaguamish Tribal youth.
