What do you love about the Summit-University District? Summit-University, like a lot of Saint Paul, is a very walk-able neighborhood. I love the fact that you can visit a number of different parks with your kids with just a five minute walk in any direction. This is a very organic way to stay in shape while also meeting your neighbors. Shopping at Mississippi Market and going for a swim at the YWCA are a mainstay in my life. With two kids under 5, it has been a blessing to have great day care in the neighborhood. It is obvious that for years people have been consciously making improvements to the neighborhood and I would like to do my part.
How have you been involved in your community in the past? During the years of 2018-2019, I was a board member on the Summit University Planning Committee. On a smaller note, I generally lead trash pick-ups on my block and snow removal efforts. Luckily, I’m able to work from home, so making time to do these activities is not difficult.
Please tell us about why you are running to join the SUPC Board: As a person who has lived in Summit-University since 2003, I’m happy to call this place my home. I would like to lend my experiences as along term resident to the committee to help create sound and informed decisions.
