While in DC, Angela has worked for firms small and large and has gained a wealth of knowledge in the printing industry.

AT THE CORE

In 2008 and 2010, Angela biked across the country with the non-profit, Bike & Build, to raise money and awareness for affordable housing. This led her to move to DC in 2011 to pursue a job in bicycle advocacy. Since then, Angela has combined her love of bicycles and design. She has teamed up with a number of local bike shops and advocacy groups in the DC metro area to work on marketing & branding and advocacy campaigns.

Angela races for an all women’s cycling team, Sticky Fingers. In her spare time, you’ll probably find her biking the streets of DC and Virginia in pink spandex. USA Cycling recognized Sticky Fingers as the 2014 National Women’s Team of the Year for their efforts to get more women involved in cycling and the team’s contributions to the cycling community. Angela loves beer and trying new restaurants. She also enjoys visiting museums and galleries, live music and the company of her two cats.
