Prior to joining Brinshore, Whitney was Senior Vice President for BRIDGE Housing where she was in charge of master planning and predevelopment activities for large-scale public housing redevelopment efforts.
Whitney joined BRIDGE after directing an effort at The Michaels Organization for redevelopment of the Jordan Downs public housing site in Watts. At BRIDGE, she facilitated the closing of the first phase of the residential development that included plans for 250 units, 120,000 SF of commercial space, a 50,000 SF community center, and public park. Additionally, she supervised the planning, design and infrastructure improvements for the first phase of Potrero Hill in San Francisco as part of a 1600-unit master plan.
While at Michaels, Whitney partnered with Brinshore to manage the master planning and redevelopment efforts of the Henry Horner Homes and Robert Taylor Homes in Chicago, which resulted in nearly 1500 new mixed income residential units.
Building on her early career in architecture and urban planning, Whitney transitioned into affordable housing development as a Community Builder Fellow with HUD where she provided outreach to communities and technical assistance to developers utilizing HUD’s HOPE VI program.
Whitney holds a BS in Design from Arizona State University and an MS in Historic Preservation from Columbia University. Additionally, she attended the HUD Community Builder Program at the JFK School of Government at Harvard University.
