I am a transportation planner by profession with more than 12 years of MPO work experience spanning Texas,
Arizona, and Louisiana. I have a MS in Urban Planning (Transportation focus) from Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and
a Bachelor’s in Urban and Regional Planning from School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi, India.
Previously, I was the Transportation Director at Rapides Area Planning Commission in Alexandria, LA. My core
planning principle is based on the trivariate of connectivity, mobility, and accessibility. I believe transportation is the crux for a sustainable community affecting every aspect of our daily lives. I intend to forge a path to integrate land use planning with transportation and economic development.
