Kate Causbie (Washington, USA)
Kate is a member of the board in MiMer and is resposible for information and communication (with a special focus on our newsletters) together with Sonja Lairila and Katarina Lundgren. She is also a US-based contact person and supports programs in the US, with Emily Kieson.
Kate holds a BA in Interdepartmental Studies - Critical Social Psychology from Wittenberg University, and works in a variety of emotional support roles including as a birth doula and trauma-informed mindfulness and yoga instructor. She started spending time with horses as a young teenager, volunteering at a therapeutic riding center as well as exploring various approaches to understanding equine cognition and movement science. During her research for her BA she saw deeper nuance in the power and practices of equine human interactions, and works to find the guidance that ecological thinking, and in particular ecopsychology's ethos, can add to our paradigms in these practices.
