Christina Erickson to join Local Motion as new Executive Director

Local Motion is excited to announce the appointment of Christina Erickson as its new Executive Director. 

Erickson comes to Local Motion following a thirteen-year tenure at Champlain College. Most recently, Erickson served as the Director of Service & Sustainability, a role in which she directed campus sustainability projects, along with a service-learning program aligned with UN Sustainable Development and campus sustainability goals.

Erickson will oversee the execution of Local Motion’s newly completed 5-year Strategic Plan, which is focused on making it safe, accessible, and fun for everyone to bike, walk, and roll in Vermont. Erickson’s community-centered approach to building a sustainable society is aligned with Local Motion’s collaborative approach to promoting walking, biking, and rolling. Having served on Burlington’s Walk/Bike Council, and as a frequent bike commuter and longtime Local Motion supporter, Erickson also comes to the organization with significant experience with walk/bike issues.

"We are so happy to have Christina on board to lead our organization,” said Katie Langrock, President of Local Motion’s Board of Directors. “She brings enthusiasm, experience, and a fresh perspective to Local Motion. We feel lucky to have her and look forward to continuing to flourish as an organization under Christina’s leadership.”

"I'm humbled and honored to lead a highly engaged team who use a local approach to global issues," said Erickson. 

Erickson will begin her tenure as Executive Director of Local Motion on January 1st, 2023.

    As co-founder of the Little Free Library movement (now retired) and various other sustainability related programs through the University of Wisconsin-Madison for 25 years, I check Burlington websites and programs every once in a while and saw the notice of your new position at Local Motion. I now run The Bike Place and Midwest Partners ( in Princeton, Illinois, and can see lots a ways we might share ideas. Congratulations! Feel free to contact me at any time. You may hear from me, too, as we put together new cycling strategies and events in 2023. 608-886-2703 [email protected]
