I lead PRR’s transportation business development on the west coast while also supporting clients on emerging transportation policies and issues including road-usage charge/milage-based user fees, all-electronic tolling, new mobility, and electrification. My technical understanding combined with emotional intelligence, creativity, and empathy allows me to effectively communicate about these complex topics in a variety of communities and environments. My work brings together disciplines of research, storytelling, digital media, and community engagement to deliver messages in meaningful places and ways. After over a decade with PRR, I still love the work that allows me to combine my love of civic engagement, with creativity and constant learning. When I'm not working, I'm playing with my husband and daughter, clanging weights at CrossFit, or devouring a new piece of historical fiction or memoir.
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.”
