Erin McAlister

I'm proud to work at Alta, where I'm part of a team that impacts positive change. This work challenges and inspires me, and aligns with my values of sustainability, equity, and social awareness. I love traveling to see my family in Iowa and pointing out infrastructure or local planning work that Alta has been a part of - we live in such a small world, but our work touches communities far and wide.


Erin grew up and went to school in Iowa, where she studied English and Art. After moving to Portland in 2008, she worked as a project coordinator for a local non-profit environmental foundation. She has been with Alta since 2011, and leads business development and marketing strategy for staff in Alta’s Pacific Northwest and Mountain West regions. She is a skilled communicator, and excels at working under pressure to deliver exceptional products for Alta’s active transportation pursuits.
