Micromobility System Affiliation(s):


Why is being a board member of NABSA important to you?

First, if you’re fortunate enough to work with great people, it makes every opportunity to engage on commonly held goals worthwhile. So far, my experience has been that the NABSA Board members and staff are outstanding. Second, I’m passionate about the work that we’re doing to expand not only the conversation but the actual mobility options that are environmentally friendly, aren’t cost prohibitive, and are also fun. NABSA also has demonstrated the ability to promote opportunities to unlock the power of data to support and shape future policy to help metropolitan transportation networks solve problems in a people-centric manner through bikeshare and other micromobility devices, including e-scooters instead of strictly focusing on cars.

What experience or insight do you bring to your position on the board?

Nearly my entire professional career has been spent working towards providing equitable access to opportunities for people often left behind by status quo thinking. Previously, I’ve done this as an educator, working in the public sector (e.g. Virginia Governor’s office, DC Technology Office, Portland’s Transportation Bureau and Mayor’s office), advocating for working people under the banner of organized labor, or on the campaign trail fighting for individuals and causes. Most recently, I have done so through my work in the Smart Cities arena, particularly as it relates to mobility. As a member of the NABSA Board, I am excited to continue this work to provide full access to mobility options for everyone.
