She was formerly Executive Director of Lahaina Bypass Now, an organization that worked to establish the Lahaina Bypass and  was a huge supporter of multi-modal forms of transportation. Lahaina Bypass Now installed multiple bike racks in Lahaina and lobbied to ensure that the widening of the Honoapiilani Highway in Lahaina included a landscaped median, bike lanes and a sidewalk.

“Theo has an amazing entrepreneurial spirit and a proven ability to get things done in the West Maui community,” said Saman Dias, Board Co-Chair at Maui Bicycling League. “As a new  nonprofit that’s working to make Maui a safer place for bicyclists, we are delighted to have Theo present some of her work and her insights to our group and all who wish to attend.”
