I lead PRR’s west coast environmental sector, guiding integrated solutions for clients that keep our air and water clean, provide renewable energy, make sure our cities are resilient, and design and build meaningful private, public, and green spaces. In more than a decade with PRR, I’ve been fortunate to guide community engagement strategy on major infrastructure projects shaping our region, including combined sewer overflow and water quality projects around the Puget Sound, aviation infrastructure and planning work for some of our major airports, and projects that will help more effectively move people through and between our cities, including the SR 99 Tunnel Project and Sound Transit’s East Link and Federal Way Link extension projects. Outside of work, you can usually find me exploring the Puget Sound with my two kids, baking, or working in my garden.
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.”
