Brickline – Our Team


Our Team


Chief Executive Officer

Susan, our fearless leader, has literally been building parks since childhood. Her credentials and past positions are plentiful, she is active with MPRA and NRPA, and loves to take hiking trips.


Equity + Economic Impact Director

Chris brings his professional expertise as an engineer and land surveyor, along with his interest in sustainable infrastructure, to plan and build greenways that bridge neighborhoods and connect communities. Chris will focus on the project’s impact on people, power, places and systems through decision-making at every stage in the process. He loves all things sports, and on weekends, you’ll find him outside having fun with his family and friends or at a great local rooftop dining spot!

Shaughnessy Daniels

Community Engagement Manager

Shaughnessy engages people, neighborhoods, and partners across the region so everyone has a voice in our projects. A daily walk—rain or shine—is at the top of her to do list. Don’t be surprised if you see her on a greenway near you!

Anna Leavey

Program Manager

Anna is the Program Manager for the Brickline Greenway project. With her background in architecture and construction management and her experience on the CityArchRiver project, she is well versed in working on public private partnership projects. Plus, she is a Master Gardener!


Development Coordinator

Karen coordinates the day-to-day activities of the Great Rivers Greenway Foundation. It’s a perfect fit for someone who loves to live life outside! If she’s not gardening, hiking or riding a bike, you’ll find her at a concert at one of our region’s fabulous parks.
