Kathryn Reis – Urban Wood Supporter

Southeastern Region

I am a wildlife biologist eager to use my governmental affairs and communications skills to support the urban wood utilization movement.

While working for the North Carolina Urban Forest Council as a program manager, I had the pleasure of playing a leadership role within the NC Urban Wood Group. It is through that position that I learned about the Urban Wood Network. Additionally, my event planning opportunities for the NC Urban Wood Group introduced me to various leaders of the Urban Wood Network, which also led to participation in the Memphis Urban & Community Wood Academy (November 2023).

Even though I no longer work for the NC Urban Forest Council, I remain a member of the Education Committee for the Urban Wood Network. Additionally, I am exploring how I can remain on the Advisory Committee of the NC Urban Wood Group. For now, I use my LinkedIn account to share information that I learn about urban wood utilization.
