Kitty Helm, the Sustainability Engagement Program Coordinator in the Office of Sustainability, specializes in undergraduate mentorship, community-building, and advocating for environmental justice. She works to empower Princeton University’s emerging student leaders to make sustainable and equitable decisions through their student organizations and personal lives. She partners with Campus Life and student organizations, providing sustainable purchasing training, support for composting at events, and 1:1 consultation. She particularly enjoys building relationships and connecting students with the larger Princeton community through programs like the Princeton University Farmers’ Market and the Greening Move-out/ReSale.

She joined Princeton University in 2022 as a Post-Graduate Sustainability Fellow serving as a liaison between the Office of the Dean Of Undergraduate Students and the Office of Sustainability. Prior to joining the university, she graduated from Elon University with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies. During her time at Elon, she worked as an EcoRep for Elon’s Office of Sustainability, which inspired her to launch her career as a higher education sustainability leader. 

Off campus, you can find her teaching yoga in downtown Princeton and Ewing, hiking in New Jersey parks, or in the kitchen trying new vegetarian recipes. Through her life she strives to embody a holistic definition of sustainability with wellness and connection to nature at the forefront. 


She graduated from Elon University in 2021 with a B.S. in Environmental Studies.
