Our Team

Kelli Refer (she/her)

Executive Director


Kelli’s love of transportation policy began when she first started biking for everyday transportation. She worked at Cascade Bicycle Club on their advocacy team for over 5 years. She had the privilege of working with Seattle City Council Member Mike O’Brien as a legislative aid. Since joining Move Redmond in 2020, she has built a successful advocacy program that focuses on better policy and more funding for walking, biking, and transit. Kelli loves getting outside, moving her body, and exploring the PNW. One of her favorite ways to do that is to go bike camping! If you want tips on bike camping with small children, just ask!

Before starting at Move Redmond, she worked as an Environmental Justice Educator & Organizer at El Centro de la Raza where she did bilingual educational work with Youth and low-income communities on environmental justice issues. During her time at El Centro, she discovered her passion for Communications, Community Engagement, and transit as she would commute from Everett to Seattle. She has a passion for learning more about the intersectionality of environmental issues, racial and economic inequalities within the transit and public infrastructure. During her free time, you can find Maritza going on hikes/walks with her partner, Alex, and her dogs, Junior & Luna. She also loves photography, reading, trying out new restaurants, going to the movies, and spending time with family and friends
