My work is both informed and driven by a desire to aid low-income and destitute populations, especially those of minority groups, the working poor, and female-headed households, to help improve their quality of life. For me, as a planner, the most important factor that I can address to reach these goals falls in the range of housing as it often takes up such a significant portion of the income of the disenfranchised groups mentioned above.
