Nourie Boraie

Nourie develops and executes communication strategies for multi-state and national campaigns on behalf of Tusk’s clients.

Prior to joining Tusk, Nourie was an early employee of Bird, a unicorn start-up and the pioneer of e-scooter sharing, where she led Bird’s Global Policy Proposals team. In this capacity, she managed a large multidisciplinary, international team tasked with launching high-impact market entry campaigns and creating multilingual B2G materials, including RFP/tender responses for hundreds of cities around the world. Previously, she managed Bird’s government relations across the Southwestern U.S, legalizing e-scooters in more than a dozen cities across the region and creating suitable regulatory environments for micro-mobility.

Before transitioning to the private sector, Nourie managed communications both in state government and for a variety of state and local political campaigns. She developed and executed communications strategy as Deputy Communications Director for the Colorado Department of Human Services under Governor John Hickenlooper. In this role, her scope included services for adjudicated youth, mental and behavioral health, state run hospitals, foster care and adoption, and adult and aging services. She also held senior communications roles in the Colorado Senate President and House Minority Leader’s offices. During this time, she led caucus communications strategy for regulations related to the newly legalized system allowing recreational cannabis use, a first in the U.S.

Nourie holds a B.A from the University of Georgia where she double majored in Political Science and International Affairs.
