Annette Triplett | Chief Executive Officer

Annette joined PedNet Coalition as CEO in January 2013. Previously she served as State Director of early childhood farm to school and school garden-based healthy eating programs for University of Missouri Extension.

Annette has lived the active transportation lifestyle for many years. She lived well without a car all during her undergraduate and graduate studies, instead choosing to walk or take public transit. She intentionally bought her house in Columbia in a location so she could walk or bike to work, and now lives happily car-free.

Since 2013, Annette has led PedNet Coalition’s work to make Columbia more walkable, bikeable, accessible, and public transit-friendly. In Columbia, her engagement of community leaders, partner organizations and the public has led to successful advocacy campaigns for trails, pedestrian safety infrastructure, a bike boulevard, and improvements to the public transit system.
