Kate King
at ÅF
I am based in: Stockholm


I am an environmentalist specialized in development issues, as well as a wellness advocate and a proponent of women’s empowerment. With experience on the ground around the world, I believe strongly in contributing to a future for all that is resilient, inclusive, and vibrant. I currently work as an environmental consultant in Stockholm, Sweden, focusing on the environmental and social impacts of water and energy projects. I am also a restorative yoga teacher and trained doula.


Before moving to Sweden, I worked in environmental and sustainability fields in Luanda, Angola; Vientiane, Laos; Asheville, North Carolina; and Cambridge, United Kingdom. My combined passions for experiencing the world, environmental sustainability and community building brought me on a path that started with an education in Environmental Politics followed by an MSc in Water Resources. My travels have solidified my need to create positive impact around the world and foster change that is generated from a place of inspiration.


I strive to be continually curious and authentic in a world that’s deeply interconnected, and to be an action-taker and empower others to help this world flourish. Outside of work, I can often be found traveling the globe, listening to folk music, or busy in my organic vegetable garden. I am originally from California.
