As a transportation planner and someone who prefers traveling on foot or by bike, Amanda understands the needs of these most vulnerable users. Her areas of expertise include multimodal traffic operations and safety analysis, bicycle and pedestrian planning and design, and complete streets policy and implementation. She has worked on many complex projects from planning through construction that have required objective and transparent technical analysis, multi-agency coordination, and environmental clearance. Amanda is committed to creating a safe and comfortable public realm for people of all ages and abilities. She is passionate about strengthening connections between people and place through sound planning and analysis; creative, context-sensitive design and engineering; and effective stakeholder and community engagement. She is particularly interested in exploring the relationships among transportation, land use, health, safety, and equity. Amanda is a certified planner (AICP), an Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) board member, and an active member of APA and WTS.
Outside of the office, Amanda enjoys urban exploring with friends and family, rural adventuring with her two dogs, and pedaling around town while pondering transportation technologies and innovations of the future. She is also a competitive athlete who brings the same dedication and drive to her professional practice.
