Jenell Archer - Office Manager + Bookkeeper
Jenell keeps everything running smoothly in the office. She caught the cycling bug after a successful swimming career came to a close. She loves that everyone in the office is inspired and dedicated to making a difference in the bicycling world, and if she had a magic wand, every city would have a protected bike lane.
Jennifer Boldry, Ph.D. - Director of Research
Jennifer, or Doc B. as she's called around these parts, aggregates, analyzes and reports on every facet of PeopleforBikes' work. A self-proclaimed data geek, Doc B. loves that her work makes a real difference in the world, socially, environmentally and economically. She hopes to one day own a bike that would allow her to haul her 130 lb. dog with her on adventures.

Erik Esborg - Vice President of Finance
Erik is the man behind the curtain, managing finances and human resources at PeopleForBikes. When Erik’s not crunching numbers, he’s riding bikes, playing guitar, or dreaming of a day when he can do both at the same time.
Katy Hartnett - Director of Government Relations
Katy works to advance PeopleForBikes’ federal policy goals in Washington, DC. She enjoys visiting members of Congress and telling them how federal policy can promote bicycling as part of the solution to the nation’s transportation challenges. She wishes that she could be a set of bicycle handlebars so she could steer bike policy in the right direction!

Wendy Mayo - Director, Marketing & Communications
Wendy heads the marketing and communications efforts—working to help grow and activate the community of advocates to get more people on more bikes, more often.
