Kat Lane


Kat grew up close by in Boulder, Colorado and developed a love for the mountains from a very young age though backpacking, skiing, running, and climbing. After high school, Kat knew she needed to see the world a bit before beginning college, and her love of the environment brought her from organic farming in Fiji to the Annapurna Conservation Area Project in Nepal. On her travels, Kat was exposed to the social and environmental dangers of unsustainable land use practices, unethical tourism, and the consequences of global capitalism in the far reaches of the globe. She realized that she didn’t need to travel far to enact change and began to pursue a degree in Anthropology and Geography with a concentration in Sustainability and International Development from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California. Kat hopes a degree in sustainability and her time at Natural Capitalism Solutions will help her forge a path to a brighter future for the planet and its inhabitants.

At Columbia, Zina now serves as a fellow to a carbon tax policy nonprofit called Our Climate, where she engages in community outreach, state and city lobbying, and also serves on the Policy Committee.
