Kaitlyn Thomas

Conservation Assistant

Richmond Office

Kaitlyn joined VOF’s stewardship team, where she assists with easement monitoring in the Eastern region, in 2020. She graduated in 2019 from Virginia Tech with a degree in environmental science and worked post-graduation as a timber-marketing intern with the U.S. Forest Service in Louisiana. Kaitlyn is a self-described “navy brat” and has lived all over the United States, but seven years spent between Chesapeake and Blacksburg have made her feel like a Virginian at heart. She is committed to promoting the further engagement of city dwellers with the natural environment and the increased diversity and representation of underrepresented groups in the field of conservation.
