Kathy Orlinksy

Regional Events Coordinator & Administrative Specialist

Kathy Orlinsky learned about Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) in November 2015 by eavesdropping on another CCLer at a local climate march. She knew instantly that this was the right place for her. Within two months, she was a CCL Chapter Leader, and within a year she became a Southern California Coordinator. She now serves as staff support for all CCL Regional and State conferences where she helps local teams to have stress-free, successful experiences in planning their conferences. Kathy also assists in planning CCL’s annual international conferences and education days as well as helping with any Program and Administrative tasks that come her way.

Kathy earned her Ph.D. from the University of California, Irvine, in microbiology and molecular genetics. When she’s not working on climate, Kathy is probably reading science fiction and time travel novels.
