Meghan has experience consulting on a variety of urban planning projects, coordinating outreach activities for the Dal Bike Centre, and working in a municipal planning department. She is a relationship-builder that believes in the power of partnerships. Her strong communication skills, ability to think critically and knowledge of urban planning policy allow her to succeed in her role as Executive Director at the Halifax Cycling Coalition.
As Executive Director, Meghan is grateful for the opportunity to contribute to making our city a better place to ride a bicycle. She has been commuting by bike for the past seven years and is a huge proponent of the freedom and affordability of moving through our city by bike.
