Diana Owens Steif

Operations Director

In the small, hilly New Jersey town she grew up in, biking was mostly viewed as a recreational activity. But for Diana, it was her mode of transportation to and from school – at least until she got her driver’s license. Then her bike stood idle until she moved to Philadelphia some 15 years ago. Following her Masters at Drexel, Diana worked with the Fairmount Park Commission on green space initiatives, completed her tenure with the Peace Corps, and then found her home at the Bicycle Coalition. She has transitioned from the Bicycle Coalition’s advocacy ground game to her current role in the managerial staff. A longtime resident of West Philly, Diana spends her time split between work, her family, her garden, learning new culinary masterpieces, hiking in the Catskill Mountains, and introducing her son to the joys of biking (with a helmet of course).
