Honorary Member Spotlight - Cynthia Gibson

Cynthia Gibson
, Executive Director, 
Idaho Walk Bike Alliance
"Cynthia has lived in Boise for the last twenty-plus years after leaving the east coast congestion behind. She has loved every single moment in Idaho and now considers this vast state her home.
Cynthia is passionate about being outdoors, whether she is travelling to work or recreating in Idaho's wilderness. Working for Idaho Walk Bike Alliance allows her to share her love to move more and drive less, which she relishes every day. Now that she has landed her dream job, she enjoys connecting with all the amazing advocates throughout the state to make their communities safer, healthier, and more liveable.
Prior to this position, she worked in media sales in Boise. She liked that job too, but it required daily driving. When she isn't working, you can find Cynthia in the foothills with her dogs, Maggie and Olive."
