Transportation Demand Manager

California State University - Fullerton

Professional Bio

I have nearly 20 years of experience in program management while leading and supporting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts. I currently serve as the Transportation Demand Manager at California State University, Fullerton, where I oversee all aspects of infrastructure and transportation programs in compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), the California Education Code, Caltrans, and the South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD). I also presently serve on ACT's DEI Committee as well as on the Board of Healing To You, providing mobile medical & mental health services for survivors of domestic violence. I am committed to addressing the intersection of race, class, and access to educational, vocational, and wellness opportunities; the impact of transportation mode choice on air quality; and the importance of clean and affordable mobility choices for all.
