Civic and Social Organization | Greater Los Angeles Area, US
I'm the Executive Director of Leadership for Urban Renewal Network (LURN), a community development organization that serves as a laboratory for innovations in economic development and community building. I have experience managing place-based, economic development initiatives for banks, grocery stores, and foundations. My work has focused on helping the private sector identify investment opportunities in low-income neighborhoods, researching the informal economy, building private/non-profit partnerships, and training residents to participate in revitalization of their neighborhoods. I have the privilege of serving on the City of Los Angeles' Board of Transportation Commissioners, the Board of Directors for Esperanza Community Housing Corporation and the LA Kitchen, on the Leadership Board for the LA Food Policy Council, and on the Advisory Board for the LA Development Fund and Investing in Place. I earned degrees in Business Administration and Urban Planning.
