Marketing & Media Manager
Kat Dwyer is PERC’s marketing and media manager. She studied economics at San Jose State University and, prior to working for PERC, was the marketing manager at the Independent Institute, a non-partisan public policy research organization based in Oakland, CA. Kat’s writing on forest management and wildfire prevention has been featured in The Hill. As a student of economics and a lover of the great outdoors, she strives to bring market-based solutions to conservation issues. The innovative work PERC is doing in the conservation realm brought the Bay Area native to Bozeman and, unsurprisingly, she has quickly fallen in love with Montana’s wild beauty. Outside of work, Kat can be found hiking to mountain peaks and alpine lakes.
