EMP: Bicycle Coalition Names Hannah Williams as Project Coordinator

The San Diego Bike Coalition, an organization that advocates for and protects the rights of all people who ride bicycles, announced Hannah Williams to fill the organization’s new project coordinator position. Williams will be responsible for growing and strengthening the Bicycle Coalition’s events and managing grants throughout the county including the Regional Bike Walk Alliance and the Carlsbad Village Active Living Campaign and Education program.

“Hannah’s background and passion for bicycling make her the perfect complement to our team of everyday bicycle enthusiasts,” said Bike Coalition Executive Director Andy Hanshaw. “As San Diego becomes an increasingly popular place to ride bicycles, Hannah’s experience and training will help us move a variety of regional bicycle projects forward.”

Prior to joining the Bike Coalition, Williams worked with the San Diego Association of Governments in active transportation focusing on the Regional Bicycle Network and Early Action Program. Williams also spent four years with the San Diego Epilepsy Foundation as development and outreach manager, facilitating its teen program and various annual events.

Williams earned a certificate in non-profit management from the Indiana School of Philanthropy and recently became a League-Certified Cycling Instructor.
