Rhonda is an experienced planner and urban designer with a focus on transit and transit-oriented development. With an emphasis on promoting sustainable patterns of development through integration of multi-modal transportation systems, appropriate density, and complementary land use mix, Rhonda’s urban design experience includes a range of projects both inside and outside of the transit envelope.
She brings extensive experience in all phases of the development process, from initial entitlements to the political aspects of a public process and to design and construction. This mix of project experience has given her a deep understanding of the nature of transportation and development—and convinced her of the necessity of an integrated planning and design process.
A self-professed “chronically curious” person, she continues to explore new talents and skills every day—from basket weaving to glassblowing to flamenco. She spent time as a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco, where she lived in a mud hut in the High Atlas Mountains and provided maternal and child health education.
