Kasey Armstrong

Bio

Kasey has been shaped in relationship: to the people and animals she lives and loves with, who are dispersed across the globe, and to the land, primarily the woods and wilds in the northeastern and northwestern regions of the U.S. She has also been shaped by her identities as a white, cis-gendered woman with settler heritage, and works to leverage privilege towards solidarity. Professionally, Kasey works as a facilitator, and sees herself as a process guardian in an outcome-oriented world. Currently, she is supporting a national peer learning network of green infrastructure practitioners and designing systems thinking, reflective practice, and leadership workshops and retreats with co-conspirator Sam Novak. Before the pandemic, Kasey worked with SIT Study Abroad’s International Honors Programs as a traveling facilitator, helping students create inclusive learning community and examine their positionality and lived experience alongside their academic inquiry. She has lived and worked on a number of farms in various regions of the United States over the years. She holds an M.A. in Environment & Community from Antioch University Seattle’s Graduate Programs in Leadership and Social Change, as well as a Certificate in Sustainable Food Systems and a Permaculture Design Certificate, and a B.S. in Environmental Science from Suffolk University. She nerds out on organizational design, relational process, and social ecologies, and believes we can look to the Earth for guidance as we experiment our way into the future. When she’s not working, you might find her cooking, gardening, hiking with her pup, or working on a jigsaw puzzle. She’s currently living tiny in her renovated RV in her hometown in Massachusetts.
