Originally from Rhode Island, Kay Zagrodny is excited to apply her anthropology background as an Experience Designer at BIF. She is interested in coming to deeper understandings about human motivations and behaviors, and has performed research on populations living with HIV/AIDs, food systems, community development and microfinance organizations. Her worldview is influenced by her background in ethnographic research methods and passion for looking at how morals and values impact people’s decision-making processes. Kay holds a B.A. in Anthropology from St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and an M.A. in Anthropology with a concentration in globalization, development, and culture from the University of Memphis.
