Bike Share Pittsburgh

Why is being a board member of NABSA important to you?
Riding a bike is fun, but convincing folks to replace short trips with micromobility requires a coordinated effort. NABSA is a way for me to be an active part of making micromobility the easy choice in cities.

My experience in operations has ignited a passion to make things work better. We’ll need hardware, policy, software, and mobile-first user experiences that all encourage an equitable mobility future that our kids can be proud of. I’ve been in my role since 2015 and I’d love to help guide the most important organization in the conversation!

What experience or insight do you bring to your position on the board?
I’ve been a leader at one the country’s most innovative bike share programs for eight years. We introduced small dense stations in 2016, transit integrations in 2017, free bikeshare for transit users in 2018, and in 2022 we installed 20 charging stations as a part of a complete system relaunch called POGOH. I have a background in urban studies, and years of experience as the director of operations. I feel strongly that we need additional innovation, and funding shifts, in our sector in order to realize our collective vision of car-light urban mobility. I will bring my expertise, enthusiasm, and consensus-building skills to the NABSA board. Let’s make our future better together.
