Nadiya believes walking and biking are the best way to become truly familiar with a community. She is passionate about expanding safe infrastructure, so all have the opportunity to do just that.

Nadiya is a communications specialist with a background in marketing and a passion for sustainable transportation. She is inspired by the transformative power transit and active transportation have on the growth and lived experience within communities.

In her previous role as a communications project manager at Sharp and Company, Nadiya contributed to several major transportation projects in the DC-Metro area, including the Platform Improvement Project (Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority), Transforming Rail in Virginia Initiative (Virginia Passenger Rail Authority), I-495 Express Lanes Northern Extension (Virginia Department of Transportation), and the TransAction Long-Range Transportation Plan (Northern Virginia Transportation Authority). She has led the incorporation of GIS into transportation communications projects through interactive web mapping and demographic analysis. As part of the Foursquare ITP team, she is excited to transform data-driven processes into public facing narratives.
