Kelsey Lopez

Project Coordinator, Urban Development


Kelsey is the Project Coordinator for Urban Development at the Ross Center for Sustainable Cities in Washington, DC. She supports the Urban Development team with key offers such as the World TOD Resource and Global Platform for Sustainable Cities, and assists with financial management and general operations.

Kelsey was previously an intern with the Urban Development team, and before making her return to WRI she was the Operations Manager for the Transit Oriented Development Institute, a non-profit advocacy organization that convened business and political leaders with civil society to advance a sustainable urban agenda in the U.S. In her role, she contributed significantly to new program development, and organized conferences related to rail and urban planning.

Kelsey received her B.A. in International Affairs from the George Washington University, with a concentration in International Development and minors in Geography and Sustainability. Kelsey loves to cook, try new food (especially spicy food), and explore the city. She also hopes to continue improving her Spanish language skills – maybe with your help!
