Candidate for Housing Issues Committee Chair, 2021 - 2022
Why are you interested in serving on the WA Board of Directors?
To help better our community through engagement & involvement.
What experiences, talents, or perspectives do you possess that you feel would be an asset to the Whittier Alliance?
Architectural Designer, Master Planning, Urban Planning experiences; various software knowledge experiences to help with community visioning & spread of information; working with stakeholders to support their community's vision.
Describe any experiences you’ve had in serving the neighborhood and/or larger community. (Volunteer positions, committees, organizations, businesses, etc.)
I have been heavily involved in the housing issues committee, Kmart site subcommittee group, and the developer scorecard subcommittee group.
Within a world riddled with injustices and disparities, the above is a big undertaking. As an organization, the Whittier Alliance is trying, failing, progressing, learning and growing in these pursuits of equity and inclusion. However big or small, how would you support these efforts as a board member?
I fully support creating a diverse and inclusive environment by raising awareness of the issues at hand, and helping under-represented community members have their voices heard and supported.
