What got you interested in planning?
I was an Environmental Studies major in undergrad, and was really interested in how people think about and interact with the environment around them. I quickly pivoted to focusing specifically on transportation when I learned about how significant of a contributor our transportation system was to global emissions.
What’s your favorite project that you’ve worked on?
At USDOT, I got to work on-the-ground with FEMA after Hurricane Michael (FL) and the Camp Fire (Northern CA). This work was incredibly demanding and oftentimes heartbreaking, but it was a really valuable experience working to address the transportation needs of survivors after a disaster.
What future goals do you have for your specialization?
I’d like to encourage more people to live car-free!
