Georgette Kilgore

Holding degrees in business administration and computer science, Georgette has spent over 10 years studying emissions calculations and plants and tree species, especially those native to the Appalachian Mountain range. Her expertise in this area has enabled her to orchestrate the construction of over 30 carbon footprint emissions calculators, which apply the most recent carbon emissions and waste emissions studies.

Her carbon emissions work has been cited by many educational institutions and scientific journals, including Columbia University, University of Minnesota Duluth, Popular Mechanics, Science Times, and the Bulletin of the National Research Centre.

When asked to join the 8 Billion Trees team, she was thrilled to find a place where her passionate love of nature and desire to conserve our national and global resources could flourish. She currently resides near a National Park and is an avid hiker and fitness enthusiast, while also enjoying home gardening, crocheting, and baking.
