Michelle Lee, GISP, PMP

Director

Michelle Lee leads RSG’s transportation behavior research work and has extensive experience managing statewide and regional household travel survey programs. Her background in geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning system (GPS) technologies was essential to the development of RSG’s industry-leading smartphone-based GPS travel survey app, rMove™. Michelle applies logical thought processes to develop creative, data-driven solutions for RSG's clients.

Michelle has more than 20 years of project management experience. In that time, she has managed dozens of transportation, technology, survey, planning, environmental, health, and physical activity projects. Michelle began her career at the Center for Geographic Information Systems (CGIS) at Georgia Tech before transitioning to work for private sector consulting firms.

A graduate of Michigan State University, Michelle serves on the Alumni Advisory board for the MSU Department of Geography. She returned home to Florida in 2017 and currently resides on Florida’s Space Coast with her family. Michelle enjoys watching rockets launch and manatees swim from her backyard.
