Kasia joined MAPC in 2015 and joined the Government Affairs team as a policy analyst in 2019. In her previous role on the Transportation team as a transportation policy and planning specialist, she focused on a wide range of transportation policy and planning projects, including Complete Streets, MBTA finance and transit-oriented development policy research, Hubway coordination, and municipal parking issues.
