I’m a public policy professional specializing in transportation policy. I currently serve as the senior policy advisor for transportation at Third Way, where my work focuses on developing and advancing policies to decarbonize the transportation sector. Previously, I worked at the Eno Center for Transportation where I covered Congressional activity on transportation for Eno Transportation Weekly and led the organization’s “Transportation at the Ballot Box” research initiative. I also have several years of experience working on the Hill, including handling transportation and infrastructure issues for former Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer (IA-1) and serving as acting press secretary and legislative correspondent for Congressman Jim Himes (CT-4).

I hold a master’s degree in public administration from the Maxwell School at Syracuse University. I graduated summa cum laude from the George Washington University with a B.A. in political communication. I live in Washington, DC.

In my spare time, I’m usually learning a new piano piece, trying a new recipe, or checking out a new restaurant around DC.
