I could go on about Amy’s self confidence, ability to multi task, and to successfully interact with City Councilors, staff, and on-the-street neighborhood organizations and community activists…But the main point I would like to make in recommending her … is that over my 35 years of experience it is my opinion that Amy is a “natural” at Community Development, and her competence and commitment to sustainable community development should be encouraged.
