The Shingle Creek neighborhood is where I chose to make my home. I enjoy interacting with people of all ages and believe that you can always learn something new each day. Joining the Shingle Creek Neighborhood Association is a way for me to be a part of my community and to participate in the ongoing projects that make our neighborhood a vibrant place to live. 

I am a Global Career Development Facilitator, assisting youth in preparing for the future through curriculum development and work readiness workshops

Jared Voight SCNA Board member

“Hey there! My name is Jared Voight, and I’m the youngest board member of SCNA (only 19!). I was formerly the captain of the Patrick Henry High School robotics team, Herobotics, with whom SCNA has a partnership with. I’m currently attending the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, pursuing a degree in environmental engineering. My biggest passions lie within goodwill, community service, & altruism, and I pursue them through an online video-gaming livestream for charity that I host twice a year within our community. If you see me at an SCNA event or meeting, don’t be afraid to say hello!”

Domonique Gilmber SCNA ExOfficio Board member

I am Domonique Gilmer, and I have the pleasure of being the assistant principal of Olson Middle School. I believe it is critical to build positive relationships with students, families, and community as a school leader. My primary focuses are equity,  youth engagement, and housing issues.  As a former board member in another Minneapolis neighborhood association, I focused on populations that lacked access or knowledge of services or rights they had. While on the Housing and Commercial  Committee, I worked with tenants in the Bossen area, the most racial/economic isolated area in Minneapolis, to educate/advocate for renters rights.

Amy Luesebrink SCNA Administrative Director

I’m a graduate from both Crown College and Mankato State University with a teaching/coaching BA degree. This is the heart and foundation of my independent consulting business, Luesebrink Office Services, established in 2002.

As Administrative Director with SCNA, my role is all about assisting SCNA and its volunteers to achieve their projects, goals, and the mission of their organization. The role is to help provide resources and staff support for SCNA’s growth and work, helping with the volunteer leadership training, marketing and outreach, strategic planning and the nonprofit administrative assistance needed. It’s an honor working with SCNA’s team of volunteers past and present accomplishing so many amazing results. I look forward to continuing to work together with the SCNA board and partners to bring many more benefits to this neighborhood, local community and the City of Minneapolis.
