Hi! Jen here. I’ve been a property owner in East Lawrence since 2001 and lived here since my home at Delaware Street Commons was completed in 2007. I love living in this vibrant community of creative people who really care about their neighbors and their neighborhood. There’s a wonderful sense of connection in East Lawrence. I’ve enjoyed working with Lane and my fellow ELNA board members over the last year to make the monthly meetings more inclusive and productive. Effective meetings are part of what makes ELNA a primary gathering place and communication channel for East Lawrencians who want to get involved in the life of their neighborhood. I’ve also enjoyed supporting the annual events, such as the YART Sale and the Block Party that make East Lawrence a great place to live. When I’m not at an ELNA event, I can be found dancing, reading, knitting or working as a research engineer for KDOT.
