Carolinn Kuebler Commissioner, ANC 3F02
I’ve lived in Forest Hills since 1996, when I and my two sons, who attended our local public schools, moved to the Van Ness North Coop. Since then, I have been an active member of the Coop, serving on its board from 2000 – 2006 and participating on many Coop committees such as the Landscape & Grounds Committee. I am (and have been) an active member of many local community organizations, such as Sibley Hospital Seniors Association and Iona Senior Services. Through these organizations, I am connected to many of the resources that support DC seniors and their families.
Professionally, I received my architectural license from the State of Maryland in 1987. I received my B.A. in Physiological Psychology from Northwestern University and my Master of Architecture degree from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. As a practicing architect with over 30-years’ experience, I have delivered a broad range of projects in commercial and multi-family residential construction, with specialized work in health and wellness, transportation and community planning. My practice focuses on major trends in housing design and community planning, such as the impact generationally-integrated neighborhoods have on their residents’ health and wellness. I am a member of the American Institute of Architects, and I know the city and its requirements for DC buildings.
I understand the importance of meeting the diverse needs of our residents. As a practicing architect, I recognize the critical need for community engagement in city planning to ensure that our neighbors and neighborhoods will grow and thrive, and I am committed to promoting the livability, affordability and resiliency of our neighborhood.
As both a neighborhood resident and architect, I believe strongly in the importance of being involved in my community. We have a great neighborhood and I am committed to keeping it a safe, supportive, and inclusive one. To ensure that our neighborhood remains a wonderful place to live, I will promote investments that improve the livability of our community, build strong relationships between residents and local businesses in our neighborhood, promote our neighborhood’s safety and security, and most importantly, ensure that the voices of all residents are heard.
