If you’re not familiar with it, the award honors engineering achievements, involvement in KSPE, civic and humanitarian activities, and excellence in continuing education.
Working within the community to help create a more sustainable transportation future. As part the requirements for my Master’s degree from KU, I developed the concept of “Sustainable Transportation Optimization.” It uses linear programming to maximize positive sustainable impacts in transportation projects.

Yes, I represent APWA as a member of the 4A Collaborative, which is a group of planning and design professionals from APWA, APA, ASLA, and AIA committed to promoting sustainability in the Kansas City region.
I’m also a member of the KC Metro Scorecard Subcommittee, which is charged with developing a sustainability scorecard for the Kansas City area.

Yes, through MARC, this group helped create an action plan and best practices guide for the Kansas City region. The group continues to work to develop a clear understanding of what needs to be done to better integrate transportation and environmental planning in the region.
And in your spare time?
I’m a runner. This year I completed the Boston Marathon in 3 hours, 41 minutes, and 8 seconds, allowing me to qualify for a third consecutive year! I’m also playing in the third annual Blondes vs. Brunette’s Flag Football game in Kansas City, raising awareness and funds to advance research into prevention, treatments and a cure for Alzheimer’s.
