“For years, I only commuted by bike and was exposed to the challenges faced by pedestrians and cyclists. I also saw the beauty of active transportation – the daily wave to school crossing guards, smiles to other commuters, and a true connection of getting to know the sounds and sights of a place. I’m passionate about bringing more active transportation options to provide equitable access to destinations and improve the quality of life for all residents.”
