Dr. Kathy Gee received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Biological Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech, where her research involved evaluating Low Impact Development strategies and their effectiveness in addressing urban stormwater quality and quantity concerns. She joined Dr. Bill Hunt’s Stormwater team at NC State University in June 2008 as an Extension Associate, where she conducted research on various stormwater management practices, helped teach numerous workshops and trainings and was heavily involved in extension outreach and public education projects related to stormwater. In 2011 Kathy began pursuing a doctorate degree in the Biological & Agricultural Engineering department at NC State under Dr. Hunt. Her PhD research focused on the water quality aspects of rainwater harvesting systems and enhancing the stormwater management capabilities of these systems. Kathy graduated in 2013 and joined Longwood University as an Assistant Professor of Environmental Science, where her research efforts focus on characterizing the hydrologic, water quality, and social benefits of rainwater harvesting systems and other stormwater management practices. She teaches many courses within the Integrated Environmental Sciences major, which are listed below. Kathy is also a registered professional engineer and owner of a small engineering consulting firm that specializes in stormwater management designs and solutions. She lives in Blackstone, VA with her husband Kyle and her two sons.
