Despite the uncomfortable and unsafe conditions of my hometown's auto-centric streets, I always preferred to be biking or walking. This preference eventually led me to pursue a career in active transportation planning. I see streets as our largest public space, so they should be safe, accessible, equitable, and engaging. I'm so excited to work at a firm that is improving streets for all users.
