Kelsey Pudlock

Kelsey joined MPC as a Research Assistant in January 2015, and became a Wayfinding Fellow in July. As a Research Assistant, she supported MPC’s Great Rivers Chicago as well as stormwater management work via the Calumet Stormwater Collaborative. As a Wayfinding Fellow, Kelsey continues to support these projects as well as MPC’s Healthy Communities project.

Prior to joining MPC, Kelsey spent two years on an academic research team that continues to study how planners use spatial visualization tools to address local water supply issues, and develop an interactive tool that examines the costs and benefits of using green infrastructure for urban flood management.

Kelsey completed her master’s degree as well as a Certificate in Geospatial Analysis and Visualization from UIC in 2014. While working as a Research Assistant at MPC, Kelsey also worked for the Chicago Park District, coordinating programming and events within the Burnham Wildlife Corridor and natural areas within the Calumet and Chicago’s southeast side.

Kelsey grew up in Ogden, Utah, 40 miles north of Salt Lake City, and received two Bachelor’s of Science, one in Urban Planning and one in Environmental and Sustainability Studies, from the University of Utah. She spends her free time volunteering with Logan Square’s Farmers Market, perusing the Art Institute and exploring Chicago’s neighborhoods and open spaces through bicycling and running.
