Hello neighbors! I have lived in the Lake Edge neighborhood since buying my house on Buckeye Rd. in 2008, and have been an east-sider since graduating from the UW in the mid 80’s. As a Realtor, I encounter and deal with the issues that are important to LENA as well as the broader community on a daily basis. Now that the kids are off living their own lives, I’m happy to have a little more time for community involvement and am pleased to have been chosen to be on the LENA board!
