“ I love meeting people with a vision for the world around them, whether it's a 100-mile trail stretching across the landscape or simply a desire to walk and bike safely along their own street. I help communities, organizations, and agencies navigate their way from a shared project vision to a collaborative and strategic plan of action. My goal is to do so in a way that brings people together from many backgrounds, areas of expertise, and perspectives, creating a broad base of support for implementation.”
