The T6B Executive Board of Directors just became 37.5% more awesome! We are extremely pleased to introduce Bill Soliz, Emily Schelberg, and Briony Hynson as our newest Board members. The 6th Branch prides itself on welcoming a highly diverse group of people to our work and to our leadership, which is evidenced by our newest additions. These individuals come to T6B from a wide array of professional backgrounds and represent the best of their respective fields, and are sure to contribute a tremendous amount of knowledge, perspective, and love of community to our growing family. Make sure you say congratulations the next time you see any of them in action!
Lieutenant Colonel Bill Soliz currently serves in the United States Army as a Physician Assistant. In addition to treating patients, Bill is an adjunct faculty member at the George Washington University. Bill also brings a wealth of non-profit experience from his role as Chief of Government Affairs for the Mobile Trauma Unit.
Emily Schelberg is a former Marine, Tillman Military Scholar with the Pat Tillman Foundation, and a graduate student of nursing. In addition to being a crossfit instructor at Crossfit BWI, Emily will help us bring an entire Health and Wellness aspect to our operations. Through a partnership with the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, Emily will be coordinating home visits for nursing students with volunteer community members in East Baltimore to address care gaps and health needs.
Briony Hynson, a recent graduate of MICA’s Master of Social Design program, is very passionate about providing safe, interactive, outdoor environments for children. She has consulted on several projects involving public space transformation with T6B and it was her thesis work that drove our Bethel St. Playscape project, resulting in a tremendous operational success for T6B. Because of her creative ingenuity that area of Oliver is now a valuable community resource. Briony currently serves as the Deputy Director for Neighborhood Design Center in Prince George’s County.
