Julianne Hurst-Williams, Vice President
My parents met here in 1948, and my siblings and I were born in Tucson at St. Mary’s hospital, not via stork! I’ve lived in the Peter Howell Neighborhood for 41 years: first on Irving Circle and then in 1987 we moved into our current home on 4th St. My husband and I love this neighborhood!
I have a B.A. in creative writing and journalism for science writing from the UofA (go Cats!) where I taught Photoshop. I was a respiratory therapist for 7 years and a locomotive engineer for the Southern Pacific and Union Pacific for 23 years. I am an avid supporter of the arts in Tucson, and volunteer for many organizations including The Loft Cinema, Ben’s Bells, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, the University of Arizona Museum of Art and in China for TFF. My husband and I love to spend time with friends and family, especially our sons, and we like to travel when we get the chance.
Nancy Huff, Treasurer
Originally from St. Louis, I have lived in my house on 1st St. in the Peter Howell neighborhood since 1974. I have been involved with the PHNA since it began and have been on the board and served as president in the past. I was also the co-chair of the Broadway/Alvernon Area Plan development process in the late 1990’s.
Being interested in travel and photography, I worked at Jones Photo years ago and am now retired from the University of Arizona. My last position there was as Assistant Registrar at the College of Medicine. I volunteer at PH elementary and at the Loft Cinema. A group of us do weekly neighborhood clean up and we won an award from Tucson Clean and Beautiful. We all need to take care of our own property, including the easement behind your property, to make our neighborhood as nice as possible.
I have a bachelors degree in industrial engineering with a specialization in finance and marketing. My background includes marketing and product management as well as experience as a financial advisor and trader. In 2003 I got my Real Estate license and I have been a Realtor for over 10 years during which I have been representing a wide variety of clients, whether the transaction involves an entry-level condominium, multi-units, a high-end home or a 1031 exchange. I hold both California and Arizona Real Estate licenses and I belong to the National Association of Realtors as well as the California, Arizona and Tucson associations.
We fell in love with this neighborhood, the architecture, the pride of ownership and the location in the heart of Tucson. All those things make our neighborhood a very special place. I want to help to build a close and warm community and to make our neighborhood one of the most desirable places to live in Tucson. I live on E. 6th St. in Poets Corner.
I am a third-generation Tucsonan. My grandfather arrived in Tucson from San Francisco with the railroad in 1881. My wife and I have lived in the Peter Howell neighborhood since 1974. We live on 4th Street. I love this area and have seen three generations of children grow up here. I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.A. in journalism and sociology and I have an M.F.A. in cinematography and illustrative photography from Brooks Institute.
I worked at Pima Community College for 36 years as the Director of Media Production and Publications. I have served on several local boards, including the Tucson Museum of Art, KXCI, the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona, and the Tucson Chinese Cultural Center. I enjoy cooking, fishing, and travel. I look forward to serving on the Peter Howell Neighborhood Association board.
I am from Vermont, moved to Tucson after college, have lived in Peter Howell for 25 years and raised my two children here. I work in Health Care currently as a Hospice RN Case Manager. I also volunteer at Primavera men’s shelter. I enjoy hiking, cooking and spending time with family and friends. I live on 6th Street.
I live on Holmes Street with my husband and animals. We have been in the neighborhood since 2018. I’m originally from Tucson and moved back in 2015 after living in Texas and on the east coast. My background is in architecture and planning, and I have a Masters in Architecture from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD.) In my free time, I love working on my house and in my yard, exploring the outdoors with my dog, painting, writing, and furniture design.
Leslie M. Watson
Our family moved to the Peter Howell neighborhood in 2005. While I am a transplant to southern Arizona, for my partner it was a return home as he is a native Tucsonan. We enjoy walking in the neighborhood with our two senior dogs, and seeing progress on our yard’s landscaping. Our son attended Peter Howell and the Basis Elementary School on 2nd Street. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, quilting, and hiking in the Sonoran desert. We live on E. Texas Circle.
Neil Scott, while not a native Tucsonan, grew up in the neighborhood attending Peter Howell elementary, Rincon High School and the University of Arizona. He previously served on the PHNA board as a member, Treasurer and President.
Before retiring from the Navy and moving back to the family home on 4th Street, his work allowed him to travel the world and experience the cultures of dozens of countries.
Being a parent has been his greatest joy only exceeded by being a grandparent and great grandparent.
