Growing up visiting national parks I always loved hiking and biking in the great outdoors. It wasn’t until I moved away for college that I truly embraced all the benefits of the city. This combined with my work at a small non-profit lead me to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the relationship between community issues, the built environment and active lifestyles. Today I enjoy working closely with communities to help them become healthier and more enjoyable places for the people who live there.
