Originally from Littleton, Colorado, Emma has always had a deep love for her community and all that the Rocky Mountains has to offer. She has a Bachelor's degree in Sustainability Studies from Colorado Mountain College in the Vail Valley and a Master's degree in Global Sustainability from the University of South Florida. Her research focused on nature-based solutions and ethical animal husbandry.

Katie Darrow Communications, Outreach, & Development Manager
Katie grew up in Connecticut, but moved out west to the mountains as soon as she could. She graduated from Whitman College in WA with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Humanities, where she pursued her interests in music, creative writing, and outdoor education. Following her graduation, she began working for NOLS as a backpacking instructor and developed a love for teaching students about the importance of natural spaces. She spent the next couple of years living in a variety of places, both abroad and within the contiguous United States, until she ended up in Bozeman, MT. She has lived in Bozeman since 2020, and has grown to deeply love the community as well as its access to beautiful outdoor spaces. In the summer, she spends her time rock climbing, biking, trail running, and reading books in the sunshine, and in the winter she skis, ice climbs, and plays music with her friends. She also recently adopted a dog named Chef who loves everyone and everything, and can spend hours running around on the Montana trails.
Katie has a strong background in writing, logistics and event planning, and communication, and is excited to bring these skills to her role at BSOA's Benefit Big Sky in order to raise money in support of community and environmentally focused initiatives.
