Kathy has called Curtis Park home for nearly 37 years. She is a former historic preservation professional and journalist. She has long been involved in SCNA, having previously served on the board in the early 2000’s while also then heading up the Wine Tasting Committee and serving as Viewpoint editor. From 2003-05 she was SCNA’s executive director. She grew up in the suburbs of southern California and always dreamed of living in an old house neighborhood. She cherishes Curtis Park for its historic homes, tree-lined streets, and the neighborly neighbors who make this a great place to live and our association strong.
Bill moved into the neighborhood in 1978 when the multi-state non-profit agency he founded opened its headquarters in Sacramento. Since his retirement over 10 years ago he and his wife Robin have been traveling the world. Bill first served on the SCNA board in the early 1980s and looks forward to helping to re-energize the neighborhood.
Kat has lived in Curtis Park for over 10 years. She joined the Board in 2018 and has served as Development Committee Chair and Vice President. She champions Sierra 2 and SCNA events and marketing. Kat believes that The Learnery and Senior Center are integral parts of Sierra 2 operations and hopes to help evolve those services in the coming years.
Jonathan moved into the neighborhood in 2012, and became an active member of the Board and neighborhood shortly thereafter. There are many things that he enjoys about the neighborhood, but the sense of community and the beautiful tree lined streets are what drew him to Curtis Park. He and Katie can often be seen on their early morning walks around the park.
Kate Van Buren, Secretary
Kate and family live on 24th St. She is the current board secretary and serves on the facilities and neighborhood concerns committee.

Eric has been a resident of Curtis Park for 15 years, and a Director on the SCNA board for nine years. Two of those years were as Treasurer, and six as Board Chair; he is currently the Member-At-Large on the Executive Committee. Under his leadership, the board adopted a long-term strategic plan and presented evidence to the Sacramento City Council that led to them rejecting an application to build a 16-handle fuel center in Crocker Village. He believes that SCNA should encourage inclusivity and involvement in addition to providing services and a community gathering place for Curtis Park and surrounding neighborhoods.
John has lived in Curtis Park for 35 years, in a house that has been in his family since 1945. He has served on the SCNA Board of Directors for well over a decade, working on the preservation and betterment of our beautiful neighborhood. He hopes to continue serving on the Board to monitor the completion of the Crocker Village project and its impact on Curtis Park.
