In her most recent role, Kelsey worked as a liaison for the transportation demand management program, Way to Go, where she helped commuters in the Denver metro region transition from single-occupancy vehicle travel to alternative modes of transportation. She is passionate about making a difference toward a sustainable, equitable future for all.
