How did being in New York impact your professional journey?

Being in New York, with transportation as my field of interest, allowed me to see how the extensive transportation network was able to successfully move all of those riders throughout the five boroughs of the city.

Describe your current job. 

I am currently working for the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority as a Senior Transportation Planner.  My responsibilities include working as a project manager on nine Metrobus studies recommending service, traffic operations, customer information, bus stop facilities, vehicle design, and safety and security improvements on the highest ridership corridors in the District of Columbia.

What are the advantages of the Wagner alumni network?

Because of its extensive reach, the alumni network allows potential, current and former students obtain a better perception and perspective on how the education received at NYU Wagner can and will enhance their future careers.
