Undriving Team

Undriving runs on creativity, resourcefulness, and volunteer energy, no fossil fuels needed!  We are building our team to manage the growth of the Undriving movement and you can be part of it; contribute your talents, time or resources, contact us.


JENNY HEINS – Secretary, Board of Directors
Jenny currently serves as President of Sustainable Ballard, where Undriving was conceived. A Seattle leader in sustainability, Jenny serves as part of the leadership team of SCALLOPS (Sustainable Communities ALL Over Puget Sound) and as Regional Director for the Seattle Green Festival.  Jenny’s favorite form of Undriving is “Skip the Trip.” Working from home and growing her own food have saved countless miles.
Current Pledge:
Use the bus for every trip downtown.


JACK TOMKINSON – Executive Director, Urban Sparks (fiscal sponsor)
As director of Urban Sparks, Jack helps community groups launch and successfully accomplish projects for the public good.  Urban Sparks is Undriving’s 501(c)3 fiscal sponsor and is presently leading the creation of Service House, affordable housing for nonprofit workers.  He thinks Undriving could sweep the world with an online licensing system that other organizations can tap into, and invites others to join in to make that happen.  A home office, email and phone help Jack avoid travel.  When required, it’s bicycle, walk, or motorcycle – or when hauling stuff or people, maybe a car.  He loves biking in the quiet of night.


Julia’s diverse professional background includes art, graphic design, creative direction, editing, publishing, interactive media, non-profit management, grantwriting, coaching, and facilitation. All of these come into play with Undriving.™ Her trusty 1987 Civic was good for another 100K miles when it was totalled in 2004 – offering Julia the opportunity to discover the joys of living without a car, much to her surprise. (Read her story here.) A few years later she found her true calling, coining the term Undriving™ and inventing the Undriver License™ to spark curiosity and drive behavior change in others.
Current Pledge: Loan out my bike trailer (so someone else can see how handy it is!)
