Please describe your relevant analytical skills. I have years of professional experience analyzing data for monthly, annual, and audit accounting documents and processes. "Analytical" is one of my top five strengths from Don Clifton's Strengthsfinder.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. Everyone has biases. When presented with a situation that may expose a bias I try to get input from others, review data, and let time pass before making a decision. It helps to "remove myself" from a situation when possible in order to be impartial.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I was born at Brackenridge hospital in 1984. I have lived in this city my entire life and greatly value not only our natural spaces but also the people who make up our diverse demographic landscape. I want to continue to be proud of our city and am ready to contribute to the success of its future!
Please provide your employment history. I worked in the service industry for 15 years before moving into a corporate accounting position at Whole Foods Market. I've been working at EcoRise, an environmental education non-profit, for the last two years.
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission. Thank you for providing the residents of our city the opportunity to get involved in local decision making!
