Emily Putnam

Project Manager

Emily came to Project for Public Spaces in June 2018 as a Placemaking Intern before joining as a Junior Project Associate in February 2019. She graduated from Fordham University, where she earned a B.A. in Urban and Environmental Studies with a focus on sustainability and resiliency.

Prior to joining Project for Public Spaces, Emily worked for a parks conservancy to connect with the community, convene public meetings, and lead their capital funds efforts with public officials. She also learned about community place management by working for her hometown Business Improvement District and as a New York City Partnerships Academy Fellow. Emily is excited to utilize this background and continue to learn from the communities she meets.
