Why is being a board member of NABSA important to you?

Bike share systems are important to the future of cities in North American and will help shape their future development. As a board member of NABSA, I wish to establish bike sharing as a mode of public transportation equal to that of traditional forms of transit and ensure public funding and acceptance of bike share systems are universal in a mid-sized and larger cities on the continent. I hope to do this by creating awareness, working with government and hosting high caliber conferences that can advance the dialogue and galvanize action.

What experience or insight do you bring to your position on the board?

In Hamilton I worked on every aspect of the bike share program from inception, feasibility, planning and analysis, public engagement, public relations, request for proposals, station planning, contract development, all aspects of operations and reporting. I also have extensive conference planning experience and a background in research. I hope to help build a professional conference and work on development similar policy supports in Canada that already exist in the United States.
