Hey, y'all! I'm Madeleine, as in "mad illin'," not the kind from the Ludwig Bemelmans books "in two straight lines". I work as a planner for my municipal government's Office of Sustainability, where I am responsible for developing and implementing policies such as our environmentally preferable purchasing policy, promoting the City's bike share program, and coordinating outreach and public education events on neighborhood walkability, water conservation and urban agriculture, among other responsibilities. In case you can't tell, I love what I do and doing my best to affect meaningful change on my 621-square-mile corner of the world.
I travel as much as possible. I love good food, a good IPA and genuine, unpretentious people; I am clean but low-maintenance and flexible as a traveler.
I spend lots of time on volunteer urban revitalization projects (think everything from neighborhood landscaping to spray-painted bike lanes and astro turf parklets), reading, and hiking (yes, there are 2 quasi-mountain ranges in Oklahoma). Most of the trips I take are for conferences and/or work, so I like being near hubs with restaurants, bars, coffee, etc. Can't wait to meet you!
