Molly North is a progressive transportation leader with a unique mix of technical, policy, and planning skills as well as a hearty dose of expertise in communication and collaboration. She believes that designing multimodal cities is an integral part of the solution to some of the most serious issues we are facing, including environmental racism, the climate crisis, and declining mental and physical health outcomes.
Molly co-founded Majestic Collaborations with her husband to directly participate in community resilience work. She recently completed her Master of Engineering degree to scaffold her experience in the public and non-profit sectors into opportunities to design active transportation projects.
She loves spending time with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. They like to play frisbee at the park, cook, play board games, visit National Parks, watch movies, and play pranks on one another. She likes to garden, read, travel, knit, work on puzzles, volunteer, watch birds, and hike. Oh, and she loves to listen to her husband play music!
