Spotlight on SCNA Board Member: An advocate for seniors wants to see more volunteers

Angela Mia moved from Alameda to Curtis Park approximately 20 years ago. She feels fortunate to have found an older neighborhood with charm, friendly people and a vibrant community center. Best of all, her home is close to the famous Gunther’s Ice Cream. Angela feels like she’s “in the mix” and loves her community involvement.

Angela has been with Lyon Real Estate for nine years after a long and successful career in the mortgage business. Her initial involvement with Sierra 2/SCNA was with the Senior Center, where she currently teaches fitness walking with poles. When the Senior Center wanted more representation on the SCNA board, Angela was up to the task. She has been a board member for six-plus years and thoroughly enjoys the group effort of keeping the Senior Center and all of Sierra 2 successful.

Angela has three small cuddly dogs she describes as “spoiled rotten.” She rents a room in her home through Airbnb, giving her the opportunity to brag about the neighborhood and its charm. In addition to her pets and rental, Angela enjoys movies, music, dancing and, of course, Gunther’s. Her mother lives nearby in Eskaton, and Angela fully enjoys precious time with her.

Being a volunteer is important to Angela, a way to give back to her community. She encourages more neighbors to get involved and share their gifts through a service commitment.
