We’re thrilled to welcome Libby Nachman to the staff as our new Volunteer Coordinator! She’s originally from the Midwest and calls both Kansas City and Minnesota home. Libby has spent the past several years working on sustainability-related projects, ranging from researching biofuels in Minneapolis – where she would ride her bike until the single-digit temperatures and snow came around – to assisting coffee farmers and sustainable development NGOs in South America.
Upon moving to San Francisco, Libby worked as our Bicycle Advocacy Intern and as a Communications Intern at SPUR. She will now be switching roles to join our Program Director, Margaret, in working with our amazing volunteer community! Say hi at email@example.com, and read a bit more about her below:
How did you first get involved with the SF Bicycle Coalition?
I was looking for a way to get involved in bike advocacy and outreach earlier this year when I stumbled across the SF Bicycle Coalition’s website. I snooped around the site and discovered the internship page, which led me to, a few months later, starting as a Bicycle Advocacy Intern here. As an intern, I got involved with outreach and volunteering and quickly realized how amazing this organization is. I am now thrilled to be working with our spectacular volunteers!
What excites you most about working with our volunteers?
Our volunteers are incredibly fun and passionate! Every person I’ve met volunteering brings a unique perspective to our organization. I’m humbled and excited to work with and learn from all of these inspiring people.
When you’re not working to make San Francisco a safer city for biking and living, how do you like to spend your time?
I’m a recent transplant to San Francisco, so I am still in exploration mode and have had a lot of fun the past few months exploring SF’s varied neighborhoods and sights. If you have a recommendation of something I should see or do, please let me know. I also enjoy synchronized swimming, hiking, kitchen experimentation and sunshine – although I’m a bit worried about that last one now that I’m in such a foggy city!
