Why you are seeking a seat on the Board of Directors?
I was an inaugural board member for DNA and was very involved with the organization dating all the way back to it being a concept on a napkin. I stepped away to focus on other efforts in and around St. Louis, but feel Downtown and DNA is in need of knowledgeable, dedicated leadership to ensure it’s future success.
What are your top priorities for DNA to work on?
The same issues that it was founded to work on: Economic Development; Safety; Cleanliness; Infrastructure– all major contributors to “quality of life” for Downtown residents, visitors, and employees.
What are the assets you can bring to assist DNA’s mission?
I’m a 7-year Downtown resident, 8-year Downtown business owner, former board member and Treasurer of DNA, and also own multiple properties located throughout the neighborhood including the Central Business District, Laclede’s Landing, and Downtown West. In addition, I have relationships with many other property owners, I have a passion for improving Downtown, and have the time and energy to dedicate to the organization.
