Introducing our new Vision Zero staff

We were blown away by the response to the Vision Zero Intern job posting, and sincerely thank everyone who signal boosted, applied, and spoke with us about the position! This week, our two new hires, Hailey and Peter, started their work with Farm&City. Peter traveled to Odessa and Lubbock for back-to-back Safe Streets for Texans trainings, and Hailey has already proven to be a rockstar with outreach for trainings.

Hailey McHorse was born and raised in Austin, Texas, and she is a rising senior at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, where she is pursuing degrees in both Mathematics and History. Her childhood love of geography blossomed into a passion for urbanism, and she is passionate about using data to inform good urban and transportation planning. Last fall, she spent a semester intensively studying urban development in Berlin, Germany, where she fell in love with the vibrant, inviting streetscapes as a pedestrian exploring the city.

McHorse is one of two Vision Zero Interns with Farm&City, assisting with the Safe Streets for Texans and Pedestrian Safety Training for Law Enforcement projects by conducting outreach, assisting with trainings, and creating high-injury network maps for cities in Texas.

Pete Rios was born in Northeast Texas and he spent time in both Florida and Texas while growing up. He is a current graduate student at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. Pete attended Texas A&M University-Commerce where he received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. 

Pete is one of two Summer 2024 Vision Zero Interns, where he is able to advance Safe Streets for Texans and Pedestrian Safety Training for Law Enforcement across the state.

Katrina Miller started with Farm&City last fall, and initially worked on YIMBYtown 2024 coordination. After YIMBYtown concluded, she pivoted to work on the Pedestrian Safety for Law Enforcement and Safe Streets for Texans programs.

Katrina was born and raised in a tiny walkable village in Alaska, and attended Willamette University in Oregon, where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Public Health with a focus on active mobility and climate resilience. In 2022, she followed family to Texas and has been involved in local mobility, housing, and sustainability advocacy in Austin ever since.

We’re so glad to have Peter, Hailey and Katrina on the team!
