Megan Rosenbach, Education Director, grew up in a small town on Lake Michigan. While she loves the beach and fresh water, she is a city girl at heart. After majoring in Organizational Studies at the University of Michigan, Megan moved to Philadelphia to teach middle school social studies. She joined the Bicycle Coalition in 2010 as a Safe Routes Philly Community Representative, where she wrote the program’s curriculum and worked intensely with schools on safety and activity efforts. As Education Director, Megan manages all Bicycle Coalition safety and education programs. Outside of work, Megan is a tireless advocate for public education. She founded a community group to provide extra support and resources for her neighborhood school Childs Elementary. If you can’t find her amidst the crowd at education rallies, you may also catch her at the Cross Fit gym, carting around panniers full of local produce on her neon yellow single speed, or cooking up some yummy (mostly) healthy grub in her kitchen.
Waffiyyah Murray, Safe Routes Philly Coordinator, Waffiyyah graduated from Temple University with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Religion. She worked with non-profits throughout Philadelphia in the fields of college and career readiness before arriving at the Bicycle Coalition. A Philadelphian born and raised, she remembers how biking around the neighborhood with friends, and walking to and from school as a child, was often the highlight of her day because it gave her an opportunity to interact with peers and her community. As Safe Routes Philly Coordinator she hopes to share that same enjoyment with the students she serves, while exploring the city she loves by bicycle.
Rebecca Cweibel, Schools Liaison, Rebecca learned to ride a bike as a child in suburban New York. After many years off the bike, as a graduate student in Seattle, she decided that biking was the thing to do. She quickly became an avowed bike commuter, social/recreational rider, and volunteer mechanic. Her background is in music and education; just before coming to the Bicycle Coalition, Rebecca was teaching early childhood music at the Seattle Symphony and completing a master’s degree in music history at the University of Washington. She also holds a bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Delaware. You can find her playing cello in South Philly rock band Roof Deck, and riding around town on a very colorful Univega road bike.
