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 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.
