Bachelor's DegreeUniversity of Wisconsin at Madison

United States


I have been employed in Community Development and Housing Finance for nearly 20 years. I was drawn to the field through my work as a surveyor of historical sites and steadily broadened my background in community planning, public finance and nonprofit management. I have worked as a technical assistance provider to nonprofit housing developers, co-founded community development financial institutions, managed federal and state financing programs and created housing land banks. In my current position I manage staff and operations on more than $500 million in community development and affordable housing finance programs, a statewide land bank with more than 500 properties and design new program development strategies. My goals include continuing to grow my experience in housing finance and nonprofit administration. I want to continue to be a part of community and habitat development in Austin, in Texas and maybe even around the globe. I want to use my experience and knowledge to educate others entering the community development field and inspire the next generation of housers. Specialties: Public Finance, Administration of Federal Housing Programs, Financial Underwriting, Community Planning, Staff Management, Preservation of Affordable Housing, Green Building and Accessible Design, Integrated Housing for People with Disabilities
