I began working for TRA right after the completion of my Master's of Public Administration degree. Throughout school, I had worked for the Institute for Public Administration, in Newark, Delaware, where I focused on the development of complete communities and the interaction between transportation access and public health
In late September, TRA conducted a three-year audit of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority’s (GOAA) Automated People Mover (APM) systems on behalf of the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
I joined TRA after my graduate program in City and Regional Planning at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design. My first clients were the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Rail Transit Safety Review Program and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s AirTrain Safety Oversight Board.
Under 49 CFR Part 673, all transit agencies receiving Urbanized Area Formula Funding Grants from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) must implement Public Transportation Safety Plans (PTASPs) that comply with this new regulation.
