We’re a mighty fine crew
Annie is CarShare Vermont’s founder and executive director. She is a sustainable transportation enthusiast who has been in the carsharing industry since its arrival in the U.S.
In early 2001 she helped her friends and mentors launch San Francisco’s City CarShare, where she spent four years expanding mission-driven carsharing throughout the Bay Area and beyond. During the past fifteen years, she has served on the boards of several carsharing organizations across the U.S.
Annie has worked for and led social change nonprofits since graduating from Bates College. While starting CarShare Vermont, she also completed a master’s degree in public administration at the University of Vermont. Annie has served on several nonprofit boards locally; she is currently helping to create Oakledge for All, the region’s first universally accessible playground. Annie lives in the South End of Burlington with her husband and twins.
Scudder is our Fleet & Logistics Manager. A Burlington resident since 1989, Scudder gave up car ownership when CarShare VT was founded and became an early member, and he is very, very happy to live in a place where car-sharing, bicycling, and walking are viable options.
He loves boats and sailing and worked in marine transportation for over 15 years, which brought him to Local Motion as a bike ferry captain and led him into the world of alternative transportation. Scudder loves bicycles because they’re the cat’s meow, and loves dogs because they’re…..Woof! He can often be spotted biking around town pulling a Jack Russell terrier in a trailer, and will shamelessly agree that the dog gets the better end of the deal.
As our Director of Community Engagement, Alicia oversees all of our community outreach and mission-driven initiatives.
From 2006 to 2012 she was at UVM’s Office of Student and Community Relations, working on campus and off to foster good relationships between students and neighbors. From organizing neighborhood improvement projects and block parties to helping to resolve conflicts and mitigate late night noise, she’s done it all. Alicia loves community organizing. Prior to working at UVM, she spent two years as an AmeriCorps VISTA with Burlington’s Community and Economic Development Office (CEDO), helping to connect low-income residents with city resources through door-to-door canvassing.
Alicia is a native Vermonter and a graduate of UVM. She married her high school sweetie, Todd, and they live car-free in the Old North End with their two children. Alicia gets around town biking and walking and has fun traveling, baking, gardening and embarking on DIY home improvement projects.
Quinn is the Operations Manager at CarShare Vermont. Upon moving back to Burlington, he was happy to be able to get around largely by bike or on foot, and almost immediately sold his car. His support for the growth of walkable communities throughout the state eventually drew him to join the CarShare Vermont team.
Since graduating from UVM, he has worked on issues surrounding affordable housing and homelessness at the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board and as an AmeriCorps member at the John Graham Shelter in Vergennes. Quinn grew up in the Mad River Valley and now lives in downtown Burlington.
As Program Assistant at CarShare Vermont, Tom serves members, helps care for the fleet, and edits the Honk & Wave newsletter. A past member of PhillyCarShare and San Francisco’s City CarShare, he appreciates the flexibility, savings, and conviviality that carsharing offers.
Tom has always had a feel for the wheel. During college he helped out at a biofuels garage, coordinated vehicles for a giant student co-op, and learned a lot about life and rust volunteering at a community bike shop. A decade in the bicycle industry led Tom to Old Spokes Home—and Burlington—in 2015, where he served as Inventory Manager and worked to make transportation more equitable and fun. He has experience in publishing, arts management, historic preservation, and food systems and is completing a master’s degree in history at UVM. He lives in the Old North End with his wife and son.
