Volunteer Spotlight: Kate Lukas

Kate Lukas began volunteering for Smart Growth Vermont in September, working on website development and fundraising initiatives. She recently started working with Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and is very excited that their passion for giving back to the community will allow her to continue to volunteer.
Kate graduated from Babson College with a BS in Management and spent five years in the Boston area. She worked in Supply Chain for Shaw’s Supermarkets before moving to Google on an analytics contract. When she wasn’t at work, Kate taught Vinyasa yoga at Harvard and other studios in and around Cambridge, MA.
Needing a respite from the corporate world, Kate spent the next several months traveling to places like Australia, New Zealand, and Honduras. When she finally made it back to the states, she knew that Burlington- a place she had only visited once before but was so taken with- was the place she wanted to land. We’re glad she’s chosen Vermont, and Smart Growth Vermont, as places to share her talents.
