Chelsea, Jeremy and Natalie
Thank you Jeremy, Chelsea and Natalie!

Three of our staff members are onto new and exciting things!

After 9 years in a variety of roles, Jeremy Hanson-Gutierrez is leaving his position as Co-Director of Youth Programs. Jeremy shared, “It has truly been an honor to work alongside you as colleagues, community members, comrades and friends. I am incredibly proud of all we have accomplished. While I am not yet sure of my next steps, I know I will take some time to honor the memory of my mother and be more present with family than I have been able to be so far. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for everything we’ve worked together on.”

Chelsea DeSantis is moving to her hometown in Rhode Island to be closer to family. Chelsea first joined Bikes Not Bombs as a member of the Bike-A-Thon team and shortly after joined full-time as a Shop Mechanic where she has run the Adult Earn-A-Bike program for the last year.

After 3 years as our Communications Manager Natalie Brady is moving to Washington state for a new adventure. Most recently she led the Bike-A-Thon team for our 30th event and has also worked to improve our E-Newsletter, create new features on our website and increase the reach of BNB.

We wish Natalie, Chelsea and Jeremy the best and thank them for their years of hard work. We are currently hiring for a Development ManagerRepair Mechanic and Youth Programs Director.
