Ms. Sara Studdard

Community Engagement & Marketing Director

Explore Bike Share


Sara Studdard has been part of Explore Bike Share since its research phase and now serves as their Community Engagement & Marketing Director. In this role, she expands on the civic-focused process that initially determined the feasibility of bike share in Memphis. As EBS moved from concept to reality, Sara served as Project Manager in her position at DCA (a Memphis creative, communications, consulting firm) and President of Explore Bike Share’s Board of Directors. She spent three years becoming expert in global models for bike share, from system planning to launch to operations, and led the community input campaign to assure that Memphians guided the design of the system. During this period, she also managed marketing communications projects for DCA clients. Prior to her work with EBS, Sara demonstrated her commitment to further Memphis’ growth during nine years of experience with other grassroots organizations and worked with a variety of stakeholders including Mid-South farmers, neighborhood groups, non-profit leaders, corporate presidents, national voices on equity, and creative placemaking advocates.
