Heather Sturgill
     

Heather Sturgill graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a B.S. in Urban Studies and a Masters of Community Planning. As an undergraduate she focused on social   capital’s role in community and economic development. Then, as a   Masters student, she focused on housing and transportation policy,     exploring how all forms of accessibility (financial, physical, social, etc.) lend support towards sustainable community development. Putting her knowledge into practice, she was the Interim Director of Citizens for Civic Renewal, a nonprofit that works to empower citizens, encourage civic engagement and serves as a catalyst for civic action. In further support of the American Proverb “Practice what you preach”, she is an active Northside Community Council Board member, serving on the Safety and Livability Committee and Land Use Plan Update Committee. She also serves on the City of Cincinnati’s Taxi Advisory Commission and Vice-Mayor Qualls’ Visitability Task Force. Currently, Heather enthusiastically serves as the Local Housing and Services Cooperatives Program Coordinator for the Center for Independent Living Options. She believes that her academic background and previous work building bridges of communication across organizational and cultural differences, coalesces well with this position and supports her passion of working towards a truly inclusive community.
