Michigan Sea Grant Educator and GLERL Liaison
Washtenaw County Extension Office


Kat Cameron serves as Great Lakes Sea Grant - Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) Liaison in her Michigan Sea Grant Extension educator role. With her primary focus on coastal resilience, Kat works to cultivate collaboration between the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network and GLERL to support local communities, agencies, and networks across the basin. 

Prior to this role, Kat worked for Michigan Sea Grant as a Coastal Resilience Coordinator, where she organized a Coastal Resilience Workshop and developed MISG’s Coastal Resilience Hub, a site that connects coastal managers with Michigan-specific resources, case studies, and local Extension Educators.

In addition, Kat has worked as:

  • An urban planner for private planning and architecture firms in Ann Arbor and Detroit with a focus on climate resiliency and water resource planning. 
  • A production coordinator and chief lighting technician in the film industry in New York City. 

Having grown up on the Wild and Scenic St. Croix River in Wisconsin, Kat understands the value a water body holds for a community and is grateful her work supports communities as they reaffirm their commitment to a vibrant and resilient shoreline.

When not thinking about the Great Lakes, Kat is busy cycling, dancing, kayaking, hiking, and volunteering at her nearby nature center. Kat is also passionate about improving her community by making it more livable, accessible, and resilient for all.
