Fun Facts: I am an avid sports card and comic book collector. I enjoy watching movies and spending time with my family. I enjoy working with students and young professionals in a mentorship capacity. I really like to write and talk about anything to do with water, cleantech, and sustainability! My superpower is that I can remember context from all conversations for many years and will likely never forget that we met.

My job looks like: My role is positioned to provide learning experiences for our Laurier community and maintain and establish new external partnerships - governmental, non-profit, industry. Through leadership, I hope to strengthen our existing initiatives while bringing awareness to the many initiatives we have on the go that create a positive impact on staff and students who aspire to become more sustainable in the work and academic pursuits that they have. I am eager to learn from the people that I work with everyday and want to serve as a sustainability industry conduit for the Laurier community.

Katarina MilicicFun Fact: On a trip to Guatemala, I lived with an Indigenous community who owned a coffee cooperative, which opened my eyes to the concept of farm-to-table. That trip sparked my love and passion for sustainable food and coffee, and ever since I’ve tried to make my food choices vegan, low-carbon, and sustainable.

My Job Looks Like: Every day looks different for me! I am responsible for running sustainability programming for faculty, staff, and students including our communications, events, and outreach while building connections with on and off-campus partners. Sometimes you'll find me in the Concourse engaging with students or at my desk coming up with new ways to provide sustainability programming to our Laurier community!
