Tyronda (Ty) Gibson is the Sustainable Communities Pilot Manager at Fannie Mae, a financial services company that provides housing finance in the American housing industry. As the Sustainable Communities Pilot Manager, Ty is responsible for fostering creative programs that ensure affordable homes in safe neighborhoods are available along with access to good schools, medical facilities, grocery stores that sell healthy foods and other community-related services. Ty studied math and economics in college, and began work as a data analyst post-graduation, where she found that the work wasn’t fulfilling. One week on a trip to Atlanta, Ty joined a friend on a trip to an inner city neighborhood and saw up close and personal what an ‘underserved’ community looked and smelled like. She was instantly moved to tears and decided to pursue a career that would support communities in creating more affordable, safe housing for all Americans.
