Over the last year, she has been involved in the design and installation of four brand-new traffic gardens and three pop-up traffic gardens and she is currently working on several other traffic garden-related projects. She has conducted demonstration workshops at the local and national levelShe has presented at regional, national and international conferences including Walk/Bike/Places, the National Bike Summit and Velo-City.
