From 2005 to 2012, I was an active member of a co-operative housing community (Laura Jamieson Housing Co-op) in East Vancouver. In addition to being a Board member for 2 years and a member of the co-op's newsletter editorial team for 5 years (photos, layout, design), I performed duties as the coordinator of flooring installation. As the Coordinator of Flooring Renovations, I organized and facilitated the reflooring of 22 suites. I was primarily a mediator between co-op members, contractors and the Cooperative Housing Federation of BC.
In 2007, I was part of a small group of co-op members who organized a block party, which involved closing off the street to live music, food, and children’s games.
