Kathryn Carlson / Fundraising Committee Chair

Kathryn grew up in Milwaukee under the “New Urbanism” administration of Mayor John Norquist, which helped fuel her passion about urban land use. She has been an avid bike commuter in Madison, WI, Boston, London, and Paris. As Chair of the Fundraising Committee, Kathryn has helped to grow the organization’s budget and staff. Kathryn is currently Director of Transportation at A Better City, where she leads the organization’s research and policy agenda for Metro Boston's transportation system. She is also the creator of Buca Boot, a lockable, weatherproof bike basket that makes it easier for people to choose a bike for daily transportation needs. Kathryn holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Wellesley College and a Master of Science in Economics & Economic History from the London School of Economics. In her free time, Kathryn enjoys playing the fiddle and sailing.

Kathryn says: Transportation isn't just a system for moving people quickly through an area, but the critical backbone to place-making and livability.
