Rebecca has 6 years of experience working in outreach and communications. She uses her multidisciplinary background in urban planning, marketing, and visual art to develop clear project materials, creative stakeholder activities, and rigorous outreach summaries for diverse audiences. Rebecca is one of the few professionals who truly enjoy synthesizing voluminous bodies of feedback to pull key ideas into the next phase of work.

Rebecca found her way into urban planning through her love of public and site-specific art, which she studied at Hamilton College and then supported first-hand volunteering at a non-profit gallery in her old neighborhood. Before earning her master’s in Urban and Environmental Planning at the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture, Rebecca cultivated her communications skills while working in content marketing for an Emmy award-winning public television host back in New York.

Recently, Rebecca’s been busy supporting outreach and helping to project manage the Freeway Park Improvements Project, SDOT Pedestrian Wayfinding Project, Lake Forest Park Town Center Vision, and the RapidRide G Line (Madison St BRT).

There is no logic that can be superimposed on the city; people make it, and it is to them, not buildings, that we must fit our plans.
