Please describe your relevant analytical skills. My degree in architecture with a strong emphasis on urban planning has given me the educational skill set to be analytical from a community building an growing perspective. We did several hypothetical analytical projects around Austin during my education at UT. I have owned and operated a bookkeeping/accounting/analytical company for over 20 years.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. I am the oldest of 7 and helped raise my younger siblings and I have spent my entire life finding balance within the family of distinct personalities. I have learned to listen to all sides of the story and never make assumptions.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I have lived in several different areas of Austin in my 23 years here. I am very familiar with the diversity throughout Austin and the changes that have happened over time. I have volunteered at underprivileged schools throughout Austin. I know the life and culture that transcends our communities and I fully embrace those differences.
Please provide your employment history. My degree in architecture with a strong emphasis on urban planning. I have owned and operated a bookkeeping/accounting/analytical company for over 20 years. I have volunteered for several nonprofits throughout Austin to better my community. Given the current situation of our country, I would want to be an activist not a spectator by becoming more involved in community and govt. participation to cultivate change towards a better tomorrow.
Please provide any other information you wish to be considered during the selection of the most qualified applicants for the Commission. I would like to thank you for this opportunity of a lifetime. If chosen, I will be committed both in time and passion to this project. I will make my fellow Austinites proud.
