My mission is to ensure PRR is at the forefront of the latest transportation issues, developing smart policies, engaging the community, and communicating the benefits and challenges. I love engaging with industry professionals to solve problems, develop new programs, and share stories. I focus most of my volunteer time growing young women into confident, happy, professionals, and working mothers through PRR and community organizations. When I'm not with my PRR family, I'm taking in a sunny Northwest day with my husband, and watching our (four) kids play tennis, softball, or baseball.
An anti-racist PRR dismantles systems of advantage based on race when and wherever possible. We engage staff of all racial identities in dismantling white supremacy culture at work. This includes personal ideologies, beliefs, and behaviors. And, it includes removing white supremacy culture from the systems, cultural messages, institutional policies, procedures, and practices that PRR and our staff interact with and inform. We believe it is not enough to be “not racist.” We must be “anti-racist.”
