Elizabeth Winterhalter has been elected president of the Coastal Housing Partnership board of directors.
The nonprofit Coastal Housing Partnership was founded in 1987 by a group of South Coast employers for the purpose of making homeownership more achievable for local employees. The partnership removes common obstacles to purchasing a home through its discount programs and home-buying education services. During the past 21 years, CHP has helped more than 10,000 local employees become homeowners.
In addition to Winterhalter, the partnership board includes Elaine Abercrombie of Village Properties Realtors; Kim Cowles of Bartlett, Pringle & Wolf CPAs; business consultant Scott Eschbach; Teri Gauthier of Santa Barbara Bank & Trust; Ron Lafrican and Patrice Ryan of Cottage Health System; Robert Silsbee of UCSB; retired banker William Tumelty; and Marilyn Weixel of Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care of Santa Barbara.
