Katie Greenhaw: Regulatory Policy Analyst
Katie Greenhaw works in the Center for Effective Government's Regulatory Policy program as a Regulatory Policy Analyst. Her work focuses on the regulatory and rulemaking processes that impact public health, safety, and the environment.
Prior to joining the Center for Effective Government, Katie served as a law clerk for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in both a regional office and at the national headquarters. In this role, she helped enforce health and environmental standards in communities with unique local challenges.
Katie found her work with the EPA to be particularly rewarding, as it allowed her to see how health and environmental protections improve the quality of air, drinking water, and other crucial resources for the public. Through her work, she saw how states and tribes can work together in cooperation with EPA to achieve a better quality of life for their citizens.
Katie most recently worked on a rulemaking effort in EPA’s Office of Compliance. She has also served as an intern on Capitol Hill and worked for a civil legal clinic representing underprivileged clients.
Katie holds a law degree from Vanderbilt University. While pursuing her law degree, Katie spent a summer in Venice, Italy, studying international law. In 2007, Katie earned her B.A. in music from the College of Charleston. In addition to performing with the College of Charleston Opera, she has also performed with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, and at the Spoleto festival in Charleston, SC, where she sang a lead soprano role in Mozart’s The Impresario.
Katie is currently pursuing an Environmental Master of Laws from George Washington University.
