Meet the Team

Louise Lockett Gordon

Geez Louise, this girl doesn’t stop. On a daily basis she works with our always-expanding network of grassroots advocates, empowering them to be leaders in the movement toward a walkable, bikeable Richmond region. Outside of the office Louise is involved in Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Black Girls RUN! Richmond, Fitness Warriors, Black Girls Do Bike: Richmond, and more. As a frequent Sports Backers Marathon Training Team participant she loves the Richmond Marathon because it brings out the best in everyone. She graduated from the College of William & Mary, and got her Master of Public Health from Eastern Virginia Medical School. You can catch Louise on the James River Trail system, her favorite outdoor destination in RVA. She recommends the Mayan Ruins, calling it the “best glute workout ever.”
