Transportation Policy Manager

Cassie is 1000 Friends of Oregon’s Transportation Policy Manager. Cassie first connected with 1000 Friends as a member of our Land Use Leadership Initiative (LULI) cohort in 2021. This experience ignited her passion for local land use and transportation advocacy. Cassie later joined 1000 Friends as our 2023 Paul Gerhardt Jr. intern, during which she completed the Oregon in Motion report, interviewing subject matter specialists on critical transportation policies and programs around the state. 

Cassie brings a wealth of policy, political, community organizing, and coalition experience to this role – most recently she worked as a legislative assistant during Oregon’s 2024 short session. With a bachelor’s degree in liberal studies from Portland State University and a strong commitment to sustainability, Cassie is dedicated to driving positive change in Oregon’s land use policies. 

Outside of work, Cassie enjoys taking in Oregon’s natural beauty, reading, crocheting, and seeing live music. Raised in unincorporated Clackamas County, Cassie is deeply rooted in the local community and is excited to contribute to creating livable communities for all Oregonians through her work at 1000 Friends of Oregon. | (503) 694-3893 | she/her/hers
