Farewell: Angelica Rocha
In keeping with our tradition, we ask our team members to share a few last words about the great work they have done and their experience with us.
Tell us a bit about your time at Circulate (planning, policy, roles, how long)
I’ve spent the last two and half years supporting the organization's two teams, Planning and Policy/Advocacy. I was brought on as a part-time Outreach Coordinator to lead the outreach component of the Oceanside Safe Routes to School Plan. I grew quickly in the organization and am leaving as a Senior Planner.
What was your favorite part of working at Circulate?
This position allowed for a lot of creativity and opportunity to choose your adventure. I've spent the last two and half years testing visual communication strategies and interactive techniques to educate and engage communities about active transportation infrastructure. Through these efforts, I had the privilege of working with so many wonderful people who are dedicated to making San Diego a better place to live and work.
What are your favorite projects or accomplishments from your time at Circulate?
I have several favorite projects! A few key highlights include: installing a temporary pedestrian scramble on Pacific Coast Highway, designing and installing temporary sidewalk decals throughout the City of El Monte to promote the El Monte Vision Zero Action Plan, piloting an advisory bike lane and diverter to communicate a future for the Slow Streets program in Pacific Beach, our “Discover Your Neighborhood” temporary wayfinding program, our Crash Not Accident crash site memorial signs, and our Move Free SD Portrait Series.
Optional: What are you doing next, and what are your career plans?
I accepted a position as an Engineer/Planner at Fehr & Peers where I will continue supporting innovative mobility projects for our region and beyond!
