What are your primary job responsibilities?

As the Affordable Housing Counselor for Davidson Housing Coalition, I oversee the Affordable Housing process ensuring that it is accessible to all eligible families. I coordinate and oversee outreach efforts which include marketing, volunteer and community partnerships management, educational programs including preparing and updating course materials, conducting workshops/information sessions, facilitating classes, and scheduling guest facilitators.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Administration and 20 years of experience working in the Human Service field. My years of experience reached a wide spectrum, from providing community outreach for State-funded programs to private non-profit Homeowners Associations. Working at Davidson Housing Coalition allows me to utilize my many years of experience while helping others with that one thing everyone needs: “a place to call home”.

What are the aspects of the job you enjoy most?

I’m very passionate about making a difference and being able to help support families and individuals in their journey to achieving their goals of homeownership and financial capability, which is awesome. The best part of this job, is when clients get to the end of the program and are ready to move into their home and put everything they have learned into play, with the educational foundation and confidence to be successful.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? 

In my spare time, I find myself gardening. I also enjoy running, weight training, playing chess, volunteering in the community, and socializing with friends and family. I would like to travel more in the future.
