Walking is the oldest form of transportation and a basic human right. I live in Southwest Atlanta and am especially concerned about the increased safety risks facing people in low income neighborhoods. You can count on me to develop new partnerships that help PEDS address this.

Until recently, I served as Associate Vice President for Strategic Communications at Morehouse College. I also held leadership positions at the Arthritis Foundation, American Cancer Society, and the City of Atlanta.

I moved to Atlanta in 1993 and quickly fell in love with the Morningside-Virginia Highland neighborhoods. Their location and access are both terrific. And I’m thrilled that I can walk to parks, restaurants, and schools.

When my kids were younger, walking with them to school was a fun part of my daily routine.

But it also taught me about challenges pedestrians faced here in Atlanta. I chaired Morningside Elementary’s Walk to School Committee, which is how I first got involved with PEDS.
I’ve enjoyed contributing to PEDS’ mission to make communities more walk-friendly. And I look forward to future achievements that help make streets and communities in Georgia great places to walk.

When I moved to Midtown four years ago, I quickly discovered the benefits of living in a walkable community. I enjoy walking and biking to the store, restaurants, and using transit for my daily commute.

But I also learned about serious challenges and safety concerns facing people who walk and ride bicycles in Atlanta.

Working for PEDS ignites my passion to advocate for safe, walkable communities where all people can be healthy and thrive.

When I was in college, I lived car-free for the first time. I was lucky to sustain only minor injuries after being hit by a car in a crosswalk, but it awakened me to the many challenges that pedestrians face.

Since 2013, I’ve lived in Virginia Highland, where I am fortunate to be able to walk my kids to school, easily access the BeltLine and Freedom Park Trail, and reach many parts of Atlanta on foot. I headed the Safe Routes to School Committee for Springdale Park Elementary to encourage walking and biking in my neighborhood.

Before having kids, I worked in Boston as a research scientist. I am excited to be able to use my background in engineering and data analysis to help evaluate dangers to pedestrians and make walking safer and more convenient for all of Georgia.
