Since earning my MS in Urban Studies at UNO, I’ve continued to serve as Executive Director of inCOMMON Community Development. inCOMMON is an Omaha-based nonprofit that alleviates poverty at a root level by uniting and strengthening vulnerable neighborhoods. A recent accomplishment of our organization has been the development and grand opening of a community resource center located in the Park Avenue neighborhood (“Park Ave Commons”). It’s been incredible to see the energy and drive of area residents in their quest of realizing a more sustainable and enriched life for themselves, their family, and their surrounding community. The understanding and experience I've gained through the MSUS program has been indescribably valuable in my leadership of the organization, so much so that I plan to continue on at UNO in pursuit of a MPA.
Alumni Fun FactMy family and I moved to Omaha from San Diego, California in 2004. Although we desperately miss the beaches of sunny Southern Cal, we’re huge fans of Omaha and can’t think of a better, more supportive community for those of us who love to be engaged in the development and growth of the neighborhoods and communities in which we live.
