ELAINE LAY - Eligible for re-election having served several more than two years on the Board.

i have served on the Mission Viejo HOA board from 2008-2010 and again from 2017 to 2020. I love living in Mission Viejo! The reason that I am om the board is that I want our neighborhood to continue to be a place we are proud to call home.  I also want it to be a welcoming place and I enjoy being on the committee that welcomes new people to Mission Viejo.  You probably haveseen me carrying Adopt-A-Street bags around the neighborhood picking up trash.  I am always looking foe helpers!  I also help take care of the garden in the park because I love flowers and the other people that help with that fun job.  I like writing articles for the newsletter and also deliver the newsletter.  A big part of my retired life is Mission Viejo community.

TIA DAVIS-BURNS – Eligible for re-election having served two years on the Board. 

My name isTia Davis-Burns, my husband Jason and I have 3 children, two daughters ages 14 and 11 and a son age 3.   We bought our home in the neighborhood in 2018. I work full time teaching life skills to high school students and young adults in various communities. My interests lie in education, empowerment and personal development. I tend to “collect” tweens and teens, so they are my favorite people. For fun, I hang out with my children doing pretty much whatever they want to do. I do furniture rehabbing projects in my limited spare time. Reasons for continuing to serve on the HOA Board: 1) I like to be involved & be in the know; 2) We live here, and plan on staying for a while so we need to know our neighbors; 3) I want to implement ideas of how we can be an engaging and fun neighborhood and create the COMMUNITY that I want for my family; and 4) The more neighbors that get involved and make positive improvements to our community and their homes the more desirable our neighborhoods and community become (increased property values don’t hurt). I’d like to take on more of a Community Engagement role as my time with the board progresses.

COLETTE BOWDISH – Eligible for election having been appointed by the Board in 2020.

My name is Colette Bowdish.  My husband, David, and I moved to Mission Viejo in 1973.  Our house was brand new and no one had lawns, just dirt!!  There were no houses to the south and west of us.  We own and operate Bastiens’ restaurant, which my grandfather started in 1937.  I taught for a short time, then went to work For the Veterans’ Administration, retiring after 30 years.   I joined the board as an emergency fill-in.  I would like to continue serving on the board because I think I can help our community remain a place where people love to live their lives, raise their children, walk their dogs, grow their gardens, etc. 

SONIA DEUTSCH - Eligible for election having been appointed by the Board in 2020.

onia Deutsch worked as a physician in Peru before moving to the US. She decided to move to Colorado where she found in Mission Viejo her forever home. She started working as a Researcher at University of Colorado Hospital, then she began working at Denver Health & Hospital Authority as a Research Projects Coordinator for Clinical Trials in Oncology.
