Message From Our Executive Director

As Memphis Housing Authority’s (MHA) new Executive Director, I am excited about the housing delivery work the agency does on behalf of the citizens of the City of Memphis and Shelby County, TN.  My motto for MHA is, “Striving for Excellence and Nothing Less”.   My vision for the MHA is to provide quality housing opportunities; excellent customer service; to be a great community partner; and, to assist in making Memphis and Shelby County residential locations of choice.  I have heard it said that changing the world starts at home and I firmly believe that everyone deserves choice in where they live and how they live.

I have spent the last 23 years as a housing professional at the State, local and federal level and had the honor and privilege to serve thousands of individuals and families and I could not be more humbled and honored about the privilege I now have to serve you.  I am excited and ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work continuing to build on the great legacy of the MHA of developing and servicing superior housing for all.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and if you have comments or suggestions about how we can better serve you, please reach out to us.
