Our People Make the Difference


Elizabeth Burke

I believe that many of the healthiest choices for people are also the healthiest choices for the environment, and prioritizing those can create spaces for people to benefit from interactions with nature and each other. I hope to create opportunities for active transportation that have positive impacts in all aspects of a community.
