Planning & Engagement Project Manager
Ausra joined the Fairmount Park Conservancy and moved to Philadelphia in March of 2022. As the Planning and Engagement Project Manager, she supports the Capital Projects team by designing and implementing community engagement plans and strategies. She also acts as a liaison between designers, contractors, and the public to ensure that projects are managed with transparency and efficiency. She brings experience with project management and community engagement to this position, as well as a background in environmental design. Though she will always have a special place in her heart for her hometown of Buffalo, New York, she is excited to see and experience all that Philadelphia has to offer. Ausra graduated in December of 2021 from The University at Buffalo with a Master’s of Urban and Regional Planning, specializing in neighborhood planning and community development and also holds a Bachelor’s from UB in Environmental Design. Outside of work, Ausra enjoys playing classical guitar, making mosaic artwork, cooking, and gardening.
