Executive Director, dblTilde CORE, Inc.
Carol has a breadth of knowledge and expertise in transportation planning and operations, working at both the city and regional levels, including school- and community-based active transportation plans and older adult mobility. She understands the importance of both big data and personal experience to determine feasible changes to transportation systems that make travel by all modes safe, accessible, and comfortable for all ages and abilities.
Because Carol walks and bicycles every day, she brings both her professional and personal experience to conversations about creating walkable communities. She believes in aiming for a network that works for pedestrians, emphasizing the safety and access for pedestrians that benefit all travelers, regardless of mode.
Carol started dblTilde CORE, Inc. in 2021, a nonprofit whose mission is to advance knowledge about and planning for sustainable mobility and wellness in communities through outreach, research, and education.
Carol has spoken nationally and regionally on the need to revise long-standing perceptions of older adults through words and images. She continues to conduct research on older adult mobility and wellness, partnering with several universities. The Mineta Transportation Institute published her pioneering work, Cycling past 50: A Closer Look into the World of Older Cyclists, and hosted the 50+ Cycling Survey Year 4. Results from the survey will be available in the fall 2022.
