Dr. Kari Koshiol, Senior Project Manager and Client Relations
When Kari was teaching high school English, the principal of the school was always telling people to read Springtide’s belonging research. So once Kari finished her Ph.D. in Curriculum, Instruction and the Science of Learning from the University at Buffalo (NY), in which she focused her research on creating classroom environments that foster belonging and autonomy, she joined the Springtide team. Kari focuses on managing internal initiatives and projects for custom research clients. To her, the best part of the job is getting to conduct and present research that helps adults better understand young people and provides them with the resources they need to grow as humans. Kari’s favorite pastimes include being active outdoors with her husband, curling up on a comfy chair reading just about any novel she can find, or birthday shopping for one of her 12 nieces and nephews.
