Southern California Regional Director, California High-Speed Rail Authority

As Southern California Regional Director for the California High-Speed Rail Authority, Michelle Boehm oversees all aspects of project development in the region. Appointed by Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. in 2012, in her role with the Authority, she chairs a regional transportation CEO group focused on high-speed Rail issues and participates in the Regional Rail Partner’s Working Group which focuses on passenger rail planning in California.

Boehm brings nearly 20 years of experience in transportation planning and policy analysis. Before joining the Authority, she was a Vice President with one of the largest Architectural and Engineering firms in the Country. In that role, Boehm was the regional manager responsible for overseeing business development, strategic planning, and public agency and community outreach for projects throughout Southern California. Recent planning documents of note Boehm collaborated on are the I-15 Corridor System Master Plan and several Conceptual Study Reports for the San Pedro Waterfront, the I-710 Corridor, and Alameda Corridor East. She worked directly with agencies including the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Port of Los Angeles, California Department of Transportation, Nevada Department of Transportation, San Diego Association of Governments, Alameda Corridor-East Construction Authority, and several local Cities to deliver these, and other notable regional projects.

Over the course of her career Boehm has proven her ability as a business manager and strategic planner, having developed strategy for transportation, water, geotechnical, structural, and environmental engineering and planning practice development and projects. She established a small business outreach program for a former employer in close coordination with the Los Angeles Minority Business Opportunity Council to support the contracting goals of clients including City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. She also collaborated on several large, successful architectural projects including the Oregon State University Football Stadium Renovation, and the San Francisco 49ers Stadium Replacement, to name a few.

Always demonstrating her passion for transportation, Boehm also held leadership positions in several local industry organizations. As a founding member and former advisory board member for Mobility 21, a coalition of elected officials and transportation providers, she pursued solutions to transportation issues in Southern California. She also serves as a Director-at-Large on the Board of the Women’s Transportation Seminar, and as an Ex-Officio Board Member on the LOSSAN Rail Corridor Agency Board of Directors.
