Assistant Town Manager, Town of Enfield, CT
Kasia Purciello is currently the Assistant Town Manager for Enfield, Connecticut, a municipality of approximately 45,000 residents.
Prior to this role, Kasia was a Budget Analyst at the Budget and Financial Management Division of the Office of Policy and Management.
Kasia came directly to the MPA program after earning her Bachelor’s in Political Science and Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Connecticut. The MPA program appealed to Kasia because of the dedication of the professors. While Kasia found herself drawn to the DPP’s Certificate in Public Financial Management, the MPA program inspired Kasia to pursue a career in town management and leadership.
When asked if she has any advice for current MPA students, she stated that networking was a crucial aspect of the program. “Be open to new things and don’t shy away from experiences you don’t think you will excel in. You never know where a course or experience might take you in your future.”
When looking ahead, Kasia plans to advance to a Town Manager role.
