Based in Walker’s San Francisco office, Chrissy has over 15 years of experience in parking, mobility, transit, and land use planning, policy, and finance. She works with cities, airports, universities, transit agencies, and other entities across the country on parking and mobility studies, including parking, transit, land use, and shared mobility plans; financial analysis; policy and code analysis; curb management; dockless vehicle planning; TNC planning and management; and forecasting parking demand. Her mobility and finance background lends expertise in recommending holistic, multi-modal approaches to implement strategies that enhance economic development, improve transportation options, and allow for smart growth. She also focuses on curb management and leads Walker’s autonomous vehicle and shared mobility strategy.
Her work has led to an innovative financing strategy to fund over $10 billion in transit projects in Chicago and the redevelopment of Chicago Union Station through a public-private partnership that included $1 billion in station improvements. She has worked on several state and local public-private partnerships for highways, parking assets, transit, and airports including an evaluation that informed the renegotiation of Chicago’s parking meter public private partnership to save taxpayer dollars and make the system more efficient.
Chrissy co-hosts Mondays at the Overhead Wire, a weekly podcast on planning, land use, and mobility issues.
