Dr. Beth Karlin is a psychologist and social change strategist with a passion for applying behavioral science insights in education, sustainability, media, and health. Before starting See Change, she spent a decade working in K-12 education as a teacher, counselor, and school administrator.

Beth has published in venues ranging from Psychological Bulletin to Peace Studies and is a sought-after speaker on Storytelling, Smart Technology, and the Social Science of Sustainability (and yes she loves alliteration). Beth is a past President of the American Psychological Association’s Environmental Division, a committee member of the National Academy of Sciences Environmental Health Matters Initiative, and an instructor in the Sustainability & Behavior Change Program at UC San Diego. She has a complete inability to remember people’s names at conferences but somehow still knows the lyrics to most 90s hip hop songs.
