Kristin Purdy is a Strategist in the DC office. Before joining GPS Impact, she was at 270 Strategies where she created integrated grassroots and digital engagement programs, led strategic planning processes, and trained new organizers and advocates.

Kristin developed her love for organizing during her years at the University of Michigan. Her passion for people-powered movements has led her to pursue a decade-long career in the political and non-profit world. She worked on both Obama presidential campaigns as a field staffer in Michigan in 2008 and Ohio in 2012.

Through her experience at the Alliance for Biking and Walking, Transportation for America, and the Coalition for Smarter Growth, Kristin has worked at the federal and local levels to build campaigns, coalitions, and volunteer organizations in support of sustainable and equitable transportation and development policies.

She’s a proud Michigander in the District of Columbia, where she bikes to work and is always happy to give a restaurant recommendation.
