We’ve got some big time news over here at the Bike Project. We’ve added some staff! Two new staff members to be exact.
Say hi to Jessica!
Jessica is our new Program Coordinator. Jessica will be running our Earn-a-Bike programming. She hopes to expand it and translate it into several different languages to expand our outreach. Jessica has a degree in Spanish and Women’s and Gender Studies, and a background in youth and non-profit work. She was a recipient of QBP’s Women’s Bicycle Mechanic Scholarship in 2018, and is certified through the United Bicycle Institute in Professional Bicycle Repair and Shop Operation. She is also part of the team at Ponderosa Cyclery + Tour, in midtown Omaha. Jessica’s excited about expanding outreach in languages other than English, and making sure that people throughout the Omaha metro know about the resources available to them at the Community Bike Project.
Our second employee is less traditional. Meet Millie!
Millie is our new Meowchanic. She’s in charge finding weird places to sleep and being all around awesome. Millie is 15 years young and is looking forward to spending quality time at the shop meeting new people and showing them how to fix bikes.
So stop in sometime and meet Jessica and Millie (if you can find her).
