Kerry Case, Environmental Center Director
Kerry Case joined Westminster College in August 2006 to create and direct the Environmental Center. Prior to joining Westminster, Kerry was with Utah State University, serving as Director of the Utah House, a green building demonstration and learning center. While in that capacity, Kerry helped educate tens of thousands of Utahns about energy and water conservation. She holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Oregon and a Bachelor’s in English from the University of Colorado. In addition to her professional passion for sustainability, Kerry finds personal inspiration while gardening, hiking, and fly fishing in Utah’s unique landscape.
Andrew Butterfield, Bike Collective Manager
Andrew graduated high school in Boise, Idaho. He decided to play in the snow for a couple years and is finally a sophomore at Westminster College working towards a degree in biology. When he is not found holed up in his room studying, in the classroom, or on the lacrosse field, he can commonly be found on a bike, on skis, in a bike shop, in a tent, and in many other exciting places. As a technician for The Westminster Bicycle Collective, the only thing you really need to know about him is he is one of the only true bike snobs that will help you with bike-related things.
Amy Ware, Bike Collective Manager
Amy is a junior here at Westminster college studying to get a degree in Arts Administration. She was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah and when it came time for her to choose a college she decided on Westminster because she did not want to give up the great skiing, hiking and biking opportunities that were around her. When she is not studying for school you can always find her either doing some sort of performance on campus whether that be with the Chamber Singers or a show put on by the theater department. If she is not performing you will always look to the Wasatch mountains where she might be hiking, biking, skiing, or sledding. Amy is always geared up and ready to do anything adventurous and it extremely excited to be a part of the Bicycle Collective where she hopes to promote a more environmentally friendly way to travel.
Ideana Carrasco, Sustainable Food and Garden Coordinator
Ideana is a Junior working towards her degree in Environmental Science while completing the Pre-med program. She is originally from Manchester, NH but has recently been able to call SLC her home. Ideana loves to cook, run, bike the roads of SLC, practice yoga, hike, listen/play music, learn about different healing modalities, find new eco-friendly products, drink tea and eat healthy vegan goodies. After graduating, she plans to WOOF for a year and then attend Naturopathic medical school where she can help make the connection that food is medicine! Although, her main position is as the Sustainable Food & Garden Coordinator, she loves getting involved in all the other great environmental center happenings such as the Eco-Team, the Honey Bees, GPA, bike collective, and more. Ideana feels so lucky to finally have the opportunity to be part of a campus that is as concerned about the environment as she is!
Katherine Dalrymple, Garden Coordinator
Katy, a relocated Idahoan, likes to spend her time out of class climbing rocks, skiing, and adventuring in the great outdoors. She loves getting her hands dirty and taking her life to the next pitch with new garden friends. Katy also works for the Outdoor Recreation program leading trips and working at the Climbing Wall. She is in the Environmental Studies program and is seeking the Outdoor Leadership minor. Help her plant the seeds of “rock on” spirit in the Organic Garden!
