Olivia is responsible for planning and implementing key aspects of Commute Seattle’s transportation programs aimed to reduce congestion. She manages a team to support business in compliance with the Commute Trip Reduction Law and Transportation Management Program city mandate. Olivia also takes businesses on deep dives in transportation demand management and leads Commute Seattle’s fee-for-service program. She is originally from a small, car-centric town outside of Pittsburgh and earned a BS in Regional Planning from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Olivia later moved to America’s bicycle capital, Portland, Oregon to pursue a Master of Urban and Regional Planning at Portland State University. PSU introduced TDM to Olivia and you could say it was love at first sight. She’s studied travel behavior at multi-family housing, prepared major institutions for new TDM policy, and started a commuter-incentive program for 30,000 residents. Olivia is a multi-modal commuter and hopes to see public escalators in Seattle’s public transportation future.
