Executive Director Rebecca Serna has a Master’s degree from Georgia State's Andrew Young School of Policy Studies in Urban Policy in Planning and Nonprofit Management. Serna was a bike/ped intern with the Georgia DOT and draws on her experience as a Fulbright in Bogotá, Colombia, where she studied participatory planning practices and innovative public transportation projects.
Awards include 2015 Woman of the Year/Women in Transportation Seminar, 2013 Advocate of the Year/Alliance for Biking and Walking, and the 2013 Longleaf/Georgia Conservancy.
She lives in SE Atlanta with her husband and three sons, love to garden, dance, bake, and read, and looks forward to the day when biking for transportation is unremarkable.
Deputy Director Haydée Santana is inspired by the power of active transportation to connect us with our city, its communities and with each other. She began working with our volunteers in Spring of 2015 through our Bike Valet program and later through Atlanta Streets Alive.
Haydée draws from an extensive background in marketing and communications as well as her leadership of member- and volunteer-driven organizations where she has a history of fostering engagement.
Haydée enjoys walking and running around the Edgewood neighborhood where she resides, and hiking trails in and around the city with Riley, her Great Danebull. And, of course, you'll also find her exploring Atlanta’s neighborhoods and urban treasures by bike.
Atlanta Streets Alive Program Manager Heather Luyk is an Atlanta native and moved back in March of 2015 after eight years away. She received her Masters in Nonprofit Organizations from the University of Georgia.
During her time in Athens, she developed a passion for sustainable living and getting a bike was a big part of her lifestyle change. After a year back in Atlanta she decided to car-free and hasn't looked back.
Heather lives in Adair Park and enjoys pedaling through the streets of Southwest Atlanta, gardening and finding free yoga classes across the city. She also sits on the board of her neighborhood association (as the events chair, of course).
