Preferred Properties is pleased to announce that Cheryl Wilson has been selected as Executive Director!
Cheryl Wilson brings over 22 years of housing development and management experience to Preferred Properties.
Most recently, Cheryl served as the Director of Community Engagement and Client Support for the Neighborhood Health Association (NHA), a federally qualified health center. Cheryl’s position provided an advocating nexus between health care and affordable housing for low to middle income families in Northwest Ohio.
Neighborhood Health is primarily responsible for providing healthcare and sanitary lifestyles to the underserved individuals in the community through its programs and services.
Prior to NHA, Mrs. Wilson served in the industry of affordable housing programs, commercial and private real estate with the Department of Housing and Urban Development through the Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA). Cheryl was a part of the Leadership Management team that guided a housing portfolio of 3,701 Public Housing units; 4,366 Housing Choice Vouchers; 132 Low-Income Housing Tax Credit units; 198 Market Rate units; and, 53 Rent-to-Own properties.
During Cheryl’s tenure with LMHA, she served as a Regional Asset Manager, an Occupancy and Leasing Manager for Multi-Family, Affordable and Conventional Housing and as the Area Manager of Privatized and Tax Credit Communities owned by the Housing Authority. Cheryl also served for many years as the Hearing Officer for the Public Housing division at LMHA. In addition, Cheryl has provided training and workshops on Effective Community Outreach, Financial Stability for the Low Income Population and Public Housing Programs in the areas of Admission and Occupancy. Cheryl is certified in numerous programs that service the low and middle income communities.
Cheryl guided a unique program with LMHA and various state, county and financial entities that provided low-income citizens the opportunity to improve their financial portfolio. The outcome resulted in the purchase of newly renovated homes purchased from the Lucas County Land Bank. This experience helped to foster neighborhood stabilization and elevate the lifestyle of the new home owner. The project was a new experience for LMHA and as a result, it helped to guide residents to their dream of homeownership.
Cheryl is extremely thankful for the professional expertise and guidance received from her Mentor, Retired Executive Director, Linnie B. Willis. The positive impact of Linnie’s investment on her career is immeasurable.
Cheryl is married to Walden Wilson and they have one daughter who is a proud “Arrow” at St. Ursula Academy and a cheerleader for St. Francis de Sales High School.
