Please describe your relevant analytical skills. I have always been analytical. Meaning, I see all sides when making decisions and don't know what tunnel vision feels like. I have the skills and experience with taking ideas, issues or assignments and arranging them into sections. I am a visual, auditory, non judging inspector type personality (taken from Myers Briggs Personality Test).
Please describe your ability to be impartial. I have always lived my life as a woman with unconditional objectivity. I have the innate ability to remove my opinion when listening to others.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. Austin is a unique place to reside. Growing up here, I was able to have a front row seat to see this city evolve over the last 54yrs. I appreciate our differences and have had the opportunity to work & live with many cultures including an array of different people and ethnicities, LGBTQ, economic & educational levels. And have learned to respect different opinions and lifestyles.
Please provide your employment history. I have been very active in my community and am an officer in my neighborhood Association for over 5 bbn years. I have spoken at planning commission and city council with the goal of neighborhood preservation as well as speaking for those who have no voicen(like the elderly, mentally challenged, youth and shy people who don't like public speaking). I have assisted people in getting elected, I have been a member of 2 national community service driven organizations AND have been employed at a non profit for over 20yrs. I care about redistricting greatly and would like to be a part of history in serving my district where it counts the most in my opinion.
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission. If I am chosen for this most honored commission, I will put my all into it, will be a good listener and a diplomatic voice for the state of Texas so that those silent voices can have proper representation.
