We are pleased to announce that Kellie King has joined our Providence office. Kellie is interested in land use regulation, floodplain management, and climate adaptation planning. She will be assisting our planners with a wide range of project work. Kellie earned her Master of City Planning from the University of Pennsylvania, from which she also has a Certificate in Ecological Planning. She completed her B.A. in International Relations and Environmental Studies at Tufts University. Her experience will focus on the application of geospatial analysis to economic, social, and environmental policy and regulatory issues.
Before joining HW, Kellie interned at the Rhode Island Infrastructure Bank, where she learned about financing climate resilience projects. As a graduate student, she worked as a research assistant evaluating the vulnerability of public drinking water infrastructure to coastal hazards. Kellie also taught English at a vocational-technical high school, which will come in handy with community engagement and technical trainings with our clients! When she is not exploring Providence, Kellie enjoys wheel throwing pottery and hanging out with her cat. Welcome to HW!
