Brenna works with the Gateway Cities Innovation Institute as a Research Intern to apply her knowledge of local economic and community development policy with her spatial data visualization and analysis skills. She comes to MassINC from Clark University in Worcester, MA, where she received her B.A. in Geography and will soon receive her M.A. in Community Development and Planning. Her work is informed by experiences ranging from her time spent studying abroad in Santaigo, Chile as a U.S. State Department Gilman Scholar, to the variety of positions she’s held in food service. Brenna is interested in the intersection and cooperative potential between urban development and health and economic justice. She aspires to conduct innovative, mixed-methods research which can help elevate more accountable leadership and cultivate community power and action in these areas.
