Background on why I am becoming a bus driver

I worked in health research for 9 years. The last 3 were doing community engagement and translational science. During the course of that work, I fell in love with the role that public transportation has in the life of our community. Follow this link to PDFs of some of the policy work that was created by the coalition that I lead.

This piece was featured at http://www.virginiapolicyreview.org/blog/analysis-of-the-winston-salem-public-transit-system.

I see the potential public transportation has to heal our legacy of segregation and inequity. I hope to be part of improving mobility in our community.
