Lynne moved to Jackson in 1988. She remembers the first
question she was asked when applying for a job: "Do you have a place to
live?" 30 years later, Lynne remains grateful to have a home in Jackson.

Lynne has a clear view of the costs required to develop and maintain affordable
Kim’s professional background is in financial analysis and property management. She has served on community action boards in California and New Mexico. As a fulltime resident of Jackson, she is energized by the potential to positively impact local socio-economic problems. Kim’s work in real estate locally deepened her appreciation of Jackson’s housing issue and motivated her to help the Trust address the housing challenge.
Amy has been a homeowner in Jackson for 30 years. Her professional background is in finance. She co-founded Cardinal Capital Management, LLC in CT in 1995 and was the Managing Partner until 2013 when she retired. She has been on a number of non-profit boards, including Greenwich Hospital, Project Redwood and Round Hill Community Church. Amy believes that it is imperative we insure that Jackson remains a diverse community where employees can live in acceptable housing.
I moved to Jackson in 2000 after coming out to visit a few times for Spring Break with the Hoofers of UW-Madison. I have a background in finance and in 2012 my wife and I were lucky enough to be chosen for a home in Daisy Bush, a property managed and developed by the Housing Trust. I enjoy hunting, biking, and running around the mountains straight from our front door.
