Positions Sought: Vice Chair for Communications and Outreach
Candidate Statement: Currently, I am an outreach/marketing manager for the Georgia Commute Options program administered by GDOT and ARC. This is also where my interest in transportation began. I encourage commuters to make a difference in their driving habits, which will hopefully have a positive impact on the Atlanta Metro region. Also, I believe it’s important for commuters to have leaders that are able to bring their professional experience together with other business professionals, creating a community network of opportunity. For me, becoming a member of this board will do exactly that.
