I believe peer-to-peer sharing will transform transportation, expanding mobility access for all while taking cars off the road. I helped start Lyft, and I think the sharing economy is a force for good.

As the daughter of scientists, I'm a tireless workhorse with a deep respect for research and intellectual rigor.

I like to do things that are hard, like pass groundbreaking new laws and preserve our natural heritage. Working on Capitol Hill convinced me that civility and compromise are the keys to progress.
