Director of Government Relations
June 2013 — Present
In June of 2013, I was the first government relations hire for Lyft, joining the company when there were less than 60 employees and tasked with building a policy effort and team that needed to scale as fast as the company would. In the next year, I successfully led the effort to enter and green-lit over 50 markets, including markets that competitors had unsuccessfully tried to enter for years and our team grew from one to 25.
Working at the forefront of transforming an incumbent industry is a singular experience and on the team we liken it to working on a presidential campaign, with no end date. Two years later and what I love about Lyft hasn't changed- we are a mission driven company, committed to solving a challenge that communities and families have struggled with for decades, affordable transportation.
Here's hoping the ride never ends.
