Why serve on the board?  Throughout my growing up years my family provided for me a strong focus on volunteerism. I grew up in the area and always loved Enderis Park.  I am very grateful now as an adult to live in this amazing neighborhood. We have a legacy of strong active community participation and volunteerism that makes all of our activities possible.  I hope through my service as a Board member I can encourage that same great tradition. I strongly believe that active participation in our EPNA and its many activities is one of the keys to a strong and vibrant community for all of us.

Why serve on the Board? One of the things that keeps me feeling somewhat useful is serving on the EPNA board.  My fellow board members are wonderful, energetic volunteers who put in a tremendous amount of work to help make our neighborhood a great place to live.
