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.
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.
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.
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.
Hello, my name is Susy and I am so glad to be back on the board. I am a mom to an awesome kiddo, and always put him first. I am also a graphic designer by trade, but I am passionate about all the arts and crafts—from ceramics to screenprinting to soapmaking. My dream is to build a makerspace in Tucson where people of all ages can go and learn, create, read, or just hang out. I live on Texas Circle.
Brittni Rawlins grew up in Tucson and has lived in the Peter Howell Neighborhood for 5 years. She is a graduate of the University of Arizona and has worked for a number of community organizations in Tucson. She enjoys cooking, exploring Tucson’s vast culinary scene, and traveling.

Lisa Smith has lived in Peter Howell since January 1st, 2000. She served on the PHNA board in the early 2000’s, taking a break to focus on her young children. She is an economist at TANGO, International, a Tucson-based company dedicated to global hunger and poverty solutions, and previously worked at the International Food Policy Research Institute, Emory University and the University of Arizona. She has lived in three African countries (Kenya, Côte d’Ivoire, and Burkina Faso) and worked in Bangladesh and Ethiopia.
In 2020, she began a career in Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) assessment and mitigation, and is now completing advanced training at the Building Biology Institute.
