Jenny Bard is Statewide Director, Partner Engagement, for the American Lung Association in California where she works with health organizations and medical and health professionals to support strong clean air and climate policies. Her interest in cycling began 20 years ago while organizing fundraising bike rides for the Lung Association (Two Rock N Roll and Breathe Easy Ride) because there is no better transportation mode than bicycles for clean air and healthy lungs! The organization worked with the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition to support the ride and her involvement in the coalition grew from there. She served on the City of Santa Rosa’s first Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee for two and half years and organized community support to advocate for bike lanes on Mendocino Avenue. Her goal on the board is to ensure the long-promised “Community Connector” – a bicycle and pedestrian Highway 101 overpass – becomes a reality.
Jenny is a proud grandmother of a two year old boy, with a second grandchild on the way. With her two-seater bike trailer, she is ready!
