Nominee for Devices and Connectivity; Digital Literacy and Skilling

What is your company and title?

Friends Of Parkside, Executive Director


Tell us why you’re best for these committees! 

I have some experience with devices and connectivity.


Why are you interested in serving on a Connect 313 Committee? What do you hope to gain from the experience? 


I worked for Friends of Parkside, which is a small community-based organization located in the Villages at Parkside public housing complex. Participating on a Connect 313 committee will allow us to connect our technology efforts with the City of Detroit’s broader efforts to close the Digital Divide.


What is your vision for bridging the digital divide in Detroit?

My vision is that every resident in Detroit has the skills, tools, and resources to be a productive and striving digital citizen.


Please share your current community activities and/or volunteer work.

I work for a nonprofit and do a host of community activities including operating a food pantry, assisting seniors with technology, and connecting residents to resources.


Please share any of your current committee or Board memberships.
