Karla came to the transportation industry with a background in environmental sustainability and bike racing. She has translated this background into a broad range of project management and technical experience, including multimodal transportation planning, multimodal traffic operations, transportation demand management, performance measurement, and conceptual design. Karla enjoys working with clients to create transportation systems that enhance quality of life and support broader community goals – and she’s excited to be part of an industry that’s going through large-scale change now and in the coming decades. She loves projects that involve tricky policy questions, GIS, data analytics, and innovative bicycle and pedestrian designs.
When she’s not working, Karla likes to spend time biking, camping, hiking, and being outside in the Pacific Northwest with her family and friends. She hasn’t quite been able to give up bike racing, so occasionally you’ll find her at a local cyclocross race.
