I have over 25 years of experience in the transportation industry. While pursuing my degree at Clemson University, I participated in a cooperative education program with the Virginia Department of Transportation for four semesters as a computer programmer and civil engineering design tech.
After graduation, I worked as a traffic engineer consultant, but most of my career has been with Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, a large bi-state metropolitan planning organization based in Philadelphia. I planned for current and future transportation, working closely with state DOTs, transit authorities, bridge commissions, first responders, and regional, county, city, and municipal officials. Obtaining experience with state, federal, and consulting agencies was a goal I had for my career so that I could understand various aspects of any project. Also, while there, I was awarded WTS Philadelphia’s Woman of the Year 2014.
