Kenzie Jackson (She/Her/Hers)

Campus & Community Outreach Coordinator

Kenzie is an alum of the University of Arizona and now serves as the Compost Cats Coordinator for the Compost Cats Program within the Office of Sustainability. She oversees the Compost Cats Bucket Program, a residential composting program that helps UArizona students and Tucson community members divert their household food waste. She also supports the Compost Cats education and outreach team to help create curriculum and plan events around Tucson, as well as supporting sustainable education efforts on campus. 

Kenzie graduated from the University of Arizona in May 2021 with a B.S. in Natural Resources with an emphasis in Conservation Biology. Before working for Compost Cats, she worked for the Cooper Center for Environmental Learning on their outreach team. There she worked to spread sustainable education to UArizona students using outreach and marketing tools, as well as teaching TUSD students about their local desert ecology out at Camp Cooper. She also worked for the Reid Park Zoos’ education team where she conducted animal behavior and wellness research on the team's ambassador animals. She used what she learned to help publish a paper for other zoos to create a better space for their ambassador reptiles. 

As the Compost Cats Coordinator, Kenzie’s goal is to increase sustainable education on the UArizona campus, empower students and community members alike to live more sustainably and work with community partners to make composting a common practice in Tucson.
