Dawn joined PBA nearly 19 years ago as a transport planner, and her interest in the links between transport, health and wellbeing has led her along an interesting path.

Her earlier work focused on sustainable transport and accessibility and she was engaged in the development and coordination of travel plans, Personalised Travel Plan (PTP) interventions and access strategies. She took a lead on innovative travel behaviour change programmes and wrote her Transport Masters dissertation in 2005 on human behaviour and the attitudes influencing travel choices.

In recent years she completed a further Masters degree in Psychology to complement her transport work on behavioural change, human behaviour and mental health.

Dawn is now leading on the Transport Health and Wellbeing initiative within PBA, focusing on the benefits of linking transport to physical health in terms of active travel as well as the mental health benefits associated with keeping people connected to their friends, communities and leisure activities. This links well with the work she also undertakes on designing for disabilities and on Equality Impact Assessments, which ensures our designs and strategies are Equality Act compliant.

She sat on the CIHT/TPS Professional Standards Committee for the Transport Planning Professional (TPP) qualification for six years and holds the TPP qualification.
