Area 5 Community Interest

Christy Adair

Public Safety (Chair)

I have been a home-owner in the Valley since 1990 and in Sherman Oaks since 2004.  I ran for a seat on the SONC Board in May 2019 because I felt it was important for me to understand how local government works and how my voice could contribute towards the betterment of my community.

My background and passion have had a constant, underlying theme of personal preparedness and recovery.  For almost 20 years as a self-defense instructor, I taught at several private schools and dojo’s throughout Los Angeles.  And in the same timeframe, as a LAFD CERT Coordinator, I have helped individuals and families prepare for small and large-scale disasters.

Currently I co-chair the SONC Public Safety Committee with Jenna Lewis.  As we are relatively new co-chairs, we welcome any suggestions, input or help as we attempt to provide our neighbors with public safety topics relating to both law enforcement and fire department issues.

Professionally, I have worked for several studios in Production Finance, Production Audit, Marketing & Global Promotions, and Labor Relations.
