|Organization - About Us|
Hello, Georgia Cyclists and Cycling Supporters!
As of October 2010, I began working as the full-time Executive Director for Georgia Bikes.
For the curious, here’s a little bit about me:
I am originally from Kennesaw, GA, and I currently live in Athens, where I have been an active pedestrian, bicycle, and transit commuter and activist since 2001.
From 2002-2010, I volunteered as a Board member with BikeAthens, a thriving advocacy organization working in Clarke County. In 2009, I joined the Board of Georgia Bikes!
Prior to becoming the Executive Director, I worked as a Business Manager at the University of Georgia’s Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. I’m a “double dawg,” having earned two degrees at UGA, an AB in Anthropology and a Master’s in Nonprofit Management.
I first started cycling, like most people, as a kid. My first ride was a blue and yellow Big Wheel, and then as a surly teenager I rode a neon pink GT Performer with white mag wheels (I could do a pretty mean “cherry picker”). In 2001, I started cycling again, for daily errands and general transportation. I quickly noticed how unnecessarily difficult it was to be a bicycle commuter, so I joined BikeAthens and got to work.
I look forward to partnering with all of you hard-working, front-line advocates. You are the one who makes change happen! I hope to see you at future events. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me!
Together, we will make Georgia a great place for bicycling!
All best & safe riding,
