Meet #ScienceWoman Katie Conrad
Celebrate Women’s History Month with us! This year, we’re looking forward by honoring women across the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and female conservationists who are making history in our agency and in conservation. With each #ScienceWoman, we’ll share a photo and a couple questions and answers about her work. Stay tuned for posts throughout the month!
Katie Conrad works as Fish and Wildlife Biologist at the New Jersey Field Office, and previously studied at Columbia University and the University of New Hampshire. She has a Bachelors of Science in Biologist and International Affairs and a Masters in Conservation Biology.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about working for FWS? A. I’ve only been working for FWS for 7 months, but my favorite part has been meeting and working with other FWS employees and project partners because they are amazing people!
Q. If you could have one incredible animal adaptation, what would it be? A. If I could have one incredible animal adaptation, it would be able to breathe underwater. Some of my favorite moments have been diving but it’s just so awkward because you are carrying around a tank and it always ends too soon. Being able to breathe underwater would open up a whole new world!
