The Bicycle Coalition welcomes two new board members for 2021 whom we’d like to introduce to you all: Kiera Smalls and Reggie Waller.
Kiera’s relationship with the Bicycle Coalition dates back to the 2015 Indego launch when she was the marketing manager at Bicycle Transit Systems and an advisor to the (as then known) WomenBikePHL (renamed as Folx n Spokes PHL in early 2020).
Reggie Waller is an avid triathlete and volunteer who has been active with several non-profits in Greater Philadelphia.
About Kiera Smalls
A passionate advocate for all things wellness and community building, Kiera’ ultimate mission is to help push Philadelphia forward. As the Co-Founder of City Fit Girls, she helps women prioritize their physical and mental health through yoga, meditation, and group fitness. As the Co-Founder and General Manager of Bloc Delivery, an online ordering and ebike-powered delivery service, Kiera empowers customers to shop locally for their everyday needs.
Most recently, served as the Executive Director for Philly Startup Leaders (PSL), an organization dedicated to helping grow technology startups by providing them with education and mentorship. During her tenure with PSL, Kiera led the organization through a rebrand, launched an idea-stage accelerator to help more founders get to the start line of building a business, and secured over a half-million dollars in funding for underrepresented founders in Philadelphia. She now sits on the Board of Directors advising on the accelerators and grants.
Earlier in her career, Kiera wrote about environmental injustice, community heroes, and neighborhoods that were often overlooked by mainstream media. In 2015, she joined the launch team at Bicycle Transit Systems for Indego bike share—helping Philadelphia become a model city for equitable bike-sharing implementation and best practices.
Philadelphia Magazine called her the “New Look of Power,” and Philadelphia Business Journal included Kiera in their Power 100, a guide to the region’s most influential people. Kiera reminds us that the key ingredient to being a true steward of success is paying it forward. She is committed to being a change agent and will always work to connect available resources to the people who need them most.
