About Anne Gelbspan

Board position:

Assistant Clerk

Committees:

Real Estate, General Heath Square Apartments

Current field of work or professional background:

I’m retired now after doing non-profit real estate development for 24 years. I served as Senior Project Manager with the Women’s Institute for Housing and Economic Development, working on 14 projects. I’m one of the co-founders of JP@Home in a partnership with Ethos, an initiative by local seniors to stay supported, active and independent.

JPNDC project I am the most proud of: 

I think the Brewery is fabulous–but it was developed long before my time so I cannot take any credit!

What inspires me: 

Finding ways to transform a vacant lot or building into homes and community benefits, community-building and the inspiring and wonderful people I’ve worked with over the years.

What I like: 

My many friends, my family, cooking, walking the dog, music, and reading.
