Washington School Neighbors Update: May 2017

13217035_10154097849952180_3522007254490047750_oHello! My name is Christen Bordenkircher and I am very excited to be joining the work of Washington School Neighbors as the neighborhood connector! I moved to Holland in 2001 and I’ve been bouncing in and out of West Michigan since then with a four year stint in Los Angeles and two years in Turkey. I am passionate about getting to know neighbors throughout the city of Holland and seeing how the strengths and assets of each individual can be a blessing to the community as a whole.

In the past 12 years, I have been serving in a variety of nonprofit leadership roles which has allowed me to work alongside several amazing organizations both here in West Michigan as well as in Southern California. In addition to my nonprofit work, I’ve been a professional photographer for the past nine years primarily focusing on portrait and humanitarian photography. I am a mother of two beautiful children, Sam (5) and Ada (3), and wife to Tony who is a marriage and family therapist at Holland Family Counseling.

I am thankful for the opportunity to step into this role and come alongside the neighbors of Washington School neighborhood and learn how I can be a support to the vision and dreams that exist within this community.

Please feel free to email me at christen@washingtonschoolneighbors.com with your ideas, dreams and/or concerns you have for the neighborhood!
