Bio

Christian L. Watchie has worked since 1994 developing innovative transportation options programs, successful strategic planning processes, and fresh approaches to engage the public in land use and transportation decisions. Stemming from her education in environmental planning and policy, her firm’s primary focus has been the linkage of planning with public outreach models for community-wide input on land use / transportation, transit strategic plans, and large scale public infrastructure projects.   Watchie has statewide recognition for her development of free student transit pass programs, congestion mitigation information, and policy development to expand the access and use of available travel choices.  She designs and facilitates public engagement processes for mixed-use center planning, civic architecture, and transportation policy development for a number of cities, counties, and public agencies.

Christian’s former days as a North Cascades mountains backcountry ranger keeps her willing to hit any trail at a moment’s notice.  When she isn’t in hiking boots, she can be found along an Oregon stream with fly rod in hand wearing her father’s unsightly, old, and tattered orange fishing hat.
