Destinie Hammond serves as the Communications Manager for Next Step, where she is responsible for managing internal and external communication initiatives and increasing brand visibility.
Destinie has worked in communications and marketing strategy development for nonprofits, corporations, and startups for nearly a decade. Prior to Next Step, Destinie helped to improve transportation equity and mobility first in New Orleans, where she helped launch New Orleans’ first bikeshare program, and then in North America as the communications manager for the North American Bikeshare & Scootershare Association (NABSA). Earlier in her career, she was fortunate to be able to combine her education in Mass Communications with her love of animals while serving as the Digital Media Coordinator at the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).
Destinie is passionate about animals, traveling, and the outdoors, and spends most of her free time engaged in one of these activities. She is a founding board member for Blue Krewe – the nonprofit organization responsible for operating the Blue Bikes bikeshare program in New Orleans.
