What part of The Kelsey’s mission are you proudest to be part of / support?

I am most proud to support our team advocate for truly inclusive housing. Housing is an issue that impacts all communities yet not all communities have necessarily been considered in housing development. I believe that affordable and accessible housing – as well as housing that fosters community building – is a human right. I also believe that these pillars are integral to building a future that is sustainable and equitable. I’m honored to be a part of a team with a fierce commitment to making this vision a reality. 

What do you want to create Home for More of?

I want to create home for more empathy and community. I believe you can’t have one without the other – that the only way a community can flourish is with empathy, and the only way to build empathy is through community.
