With Aeon, a Minneapolis-based affordable housing provider, she served as a resident connections coordinator to promote neighborhood quality of life alongside the residents of eight buildings. Later, as a local organizer with Elevate Energy (formerly CNT Energy), Skyler led a metrics-based community education campaign to connect Chicago’s west suburban residents with methods to lower home energy costs.

Before coming to MPC, she worked as a local organizer with Community Organizing and Family Issues (COFI) to implement leadership development workshops and community visioning with Chicago Public Schools and HeadStart parents on Chicago’s South and West sides. Skyler is passionate about MPC’s work to ensure access to high-quality housing, transportation and employment opportunities for all residents in Chicagoland.

Skyler received a bachelor’s degree in sociology and geography with a concentration in urban studies from Macalester College. A native of Chicago’s North Center neighborhood, Skyler currently resides in Ukrainian Village. She enjoys running, biking, cooking and supporting local businesses throughout the city.
