Kathy Kline is an education outreach specialist at the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute, which supports research, education, and outreach dedicated to the stewardship and sustainable use of the nation's Great Lakes and ocean resources. She grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, and graduated from Madison West High School. She has a B.A. in biology and English from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa, and an M.S. in life sciences communication from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Do you like science, but you’re not sure about a career as a scientist? Kathy Kline had an inspiring science experience in high school, but then wasn’t sure about her career path in college. She finally combined her interests in science and communication into a job that takes her to wetlands, classrooms, laboratories, and out sailing the Great Lakes to help people understand why science is important for everyone.
