Appointee Profile: Erika O'Shea


Erika will serve on the Environmental Management Commission. The Environmental Management Commission promotes environmental awareness and resource efficiency to the City’s leaders and staff, and assists the progress of Kansas City toward sustainability.

She learned about the Appointments Project® at a workplace presentation. For Erika, it seemed like a great way to become more involved in her community, guide the discussion around important topics, and meet other individuals passionate about the city.

Erika hopes that she will be able to shape policy recommendations that will make Kansas City a more beautiful, healthy, and environmentally sustainable place to live. She also hopes that her involvement on the commission will grow her leadership skills and professional network within the community.
