Orelia Brown

Community Resident

Orelia is currently in her 4th year as a school counselor at a K-8 DPSCD school. Orelia has a passion for exploring and community. She has always loved working within her community and advocating for others and herself. When she became aware of the Chandler Park Conservancy, she reached out immediately to see how she could get involved in helping a much-loved park reach its fullest potential. She loves seeing her beloved city return to its former glory while also making room for the inevitable future and is very thankful to play a small part in that transformation.
