Amy Johnson Ely, Executive Director
Amy began with the PCC in August 2012. She grew up in Augusta, Georgia, but moved to Athens for graduate school in Geography. In Athens in 2005, she began her work with local bike advocacy at BikeAthens, as a volunteer Board member and later as staff. She also served on the board of Georgia Bikes, the statewide bike advocacy organization. In Athens, she successfully advocated for priority biking and walking infrastructure and funding near schools, led the BikeAthens’ Transportation Policy Committee and City of Athens Comprehensive Plan Transportation Subcommittee, negotiated with a downtown developer which improved site plans, helped write the Athens Complete Streets policy, consulted on priority criteria for the 2nd Athens Bike Master Plan, and coordinated volunteers for a host of events & rides. At PCC, she is thrilled to take that local experience to the state level, now working on a combination of legislative, state agency, education, and grassroots projects. She’s a daily bike commuter, pedestrian, and bike tourist, and looks forward to a South Carolina where getting around of your own device – is a pursuit that’s equitable, healthy, and safe.
