Staff changes at Georgia Bikes

After six great years, I am moving on from Georgia Bikes to pursue a new position as the GA/SC Coordinator for the East Coast Greenway.

I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have worked with a statewide movement for safer streets in Georgia. I give my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has served on the Board of Georgia Bikes, guiding me and building this scrappy nonprofit from humble beginnings to the strong and growing organization it is today. Thank you to everyone who ever supported our work, volunteered, or donated money to keep the lights on!

Thank you, especially, to all these outstanding champions for better bicycling in Georgia: Paul, Joyce, and the Serrano family, Bruce, Ken and everyone at Bike Law, Aileen and the Georgia Municipal Association, ALTA planners (past and present), Rebecca and all y'all at ABC, Byron, Corey, Julio, Tyler, John, Katelyn, Mikki, Franklin, Chantelle, Walt and Joanne and too many others to name. Huge thanks to everyone who has been a Board member, volunteer, or staffer at a local advocacy organization in Georgia. It has been an honor to know and work with you, and I am confident great things are in store from the momentum we have built together.

If you live or work on the coast, you’re not through with me yet! I look forward to partnering with you to make the exciting vision of the East Coast Greenway a reality.

The Board has named our current Complete Streets Coordinator, Mr. Elliott Caldwell, as the Interim Executive Director, effective February 20th. Please join me in welcoming Elliott on his new role with Georgia Bikes!

Thank you and all my best,
