About the speakers:

Monica Callahan: Callahan is Community Engagement director for Richmond 2015, the nonprofit corporation responsible for the organization, management, and promotion of the 2015 UCI Road World Cycling Championships. She has more than 12 years of experience in public relations, community affairs, event management, and communications. She has planned and executed award-winning community programs and has served as on-air talent and producer for a community television segment. As public relations manager with Comcast, Callahan worked with nonprofit, government, and community organizations to highlight good corporate citizenry in Metro Richmond. While there, she created Feria de la Oportunidad, a jobs and resource fair targeted to the Hispanic community.

Jane Ferarra: Ferarra is the deputy director and chief operating officer of the Department of Economic and Community Development for the City of Richmond, which means she is the chief adviser to the mayor on all things related to city-owned properties. In this role, she recommends and implements strategies designed to preserve, enhance, and unlock value potential of a diverse array of real-estate assets through acquisition, disposition, and adaptive re-use and redevelopment. Ferarra has negotiated numerous complex real-estate transactions to include leases, purchases, dispositions, condemnations, and property-rights acquisitions.

Kelli Lemon: A self-proclaimed “social entrepreneur,” Lemon is passionate about creating opportunities for people to interact, whether through food, sports, education, or the arts. She is the business manager at Mama J’s restaurant in Jackson Ward, where she works daily to ensure that Mama J’s is considered one of the top restaurants in town. From 7 to 10 p.m. on Saturdays, Lemon (aka “Kels”) hosts the “Saturday Night House Party” on 99.3/105.7 Kiss FM with DJ Drake. You also can hear her during “Sunday School” on iPower 92.1 with the Heavy Hitter DJ Lonnie B.
