Kate Jamison moved to Iowa City in July of 2019 after spending the previous 10 years in Minneapolis, Minnesota, as her husband began graduate school at the University of Iowa. Originally from Southern California, Kate loves hiking, kayaking, camping, and spending time outside with her 8-year old miniature Australian shepherd. When they moved to Iowa City and started exploring, Kate and her husband’s first hike was at Pappy Dickens Reserve. Kate reached out to Bur Oak Land Trust to see how she could get involved with the Trust, which marries her interest in the outdoors and conservation with her desire to give back to the community. After learning even more about the Trust, Kate is excited to support its growth and mission. Kate has an MBA from the University of Minnesota and is currently a Product Director at UnitedHealth Group Research & Development.
