ASU alumnus Kaitlyn Fitzgerald is excited to be able to put her global studies degree from Arizona State University’s School of Politics and Global Studies to good use in the workplace.

Fitzgerald currently works at Zero Mass Water, a renewable water company in Scottsdale dedicated to democratizing water with Source, solar panels that make water from air.

Working at a start-up company means Fitzgerald gets to wear many hats whether it be marketing, public relations or business development.

Working for Zero Mass Water means I get to work with other people passionate about impacting the world,” shared Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald completed hers in Jordan since she was also studying Arabic at ASU.Being an SPGS student not only prepared me to represent our company abroad, but gave me the tools to help our company stand out amongst others,” said Fitzgerald.

Last year Fitzgerald traveled back to Jordan with her team at Zero Mass Water to install panels on the Royal Court building in Amman.

While meeting with a Royal Court member, Zero Mass Water’s CEO asked Fitzgerald to do something she never anticipated having to do in her career; pitch their company and product in Arabic.
