She then served as Chief of Staff of the Coalition for a New Dallas, a Super PAC aimed at electing officials who supported removing an elevated highway between two neighborhoods in Dallas. Nightengale then launched Dallas Innovates, a news site that promotes Dallas-Fort Worth as a hub of innovation. While covering the city, she became intrigued by the built environment. She joined the Better Block to help with its growth, spread its story, and make the world a little better by showing communities how wonderful walkable/bikeable districts are. Nightengale
