Welcome Olin and Megan!
Olin Wread: Treasurer, Finance Committee
Olin has been walking and bicycling since as long as he can remember. One of his earliest memories was learning how to bicycle on a quiet block in Palo Alto at the age of 5. His passion for safe streets and good access for all stems from a desire to transform the world into a place that allows for safe, low pollution transportation to more destinations. When not dreaming about next-generation transportation Olin works for a tech company as a Systems Engineer, designing computer infrastructure for a web-based company.
Megan Emme: Membership and Outreach Fellow
Megan joins WOBO as she heads into her final year as an Urban Studies and Planning Major, Political Science Minor at San Francisco State. Moving to SF from the ‘burbs of Sacramento three years ago, Megan has experienced first hand the vast differences between sprawled auto centric suburbs and mixed use, high density communities. She brings four years of advocacy and organizing experience to WOBO, and hopes to use her skills to grow and sustain the movement of bikers and walkers in Oakland. Her interests lie in understanding the link between urban infrastructure and its effect on community.
