Sasha serves under the Secretary of Business, Consumer Services and Housing, as a Gubernatorial appointee, overseeing loan and grant programs funding affordable housing rehabilitation and construction throughout California.  Earlier in her career, she worked for the San Francisco Mayor’s Office of Housing and Community Development on housing legislation and program design, and there, she initially became involved with efforts to provide services to tenants and to invest in rehabilitating aging SRO’s.

Sasha comes to the documentary with a personal connection to SROs as well as a passion for housing policy. Sasha’s grandmother and great-grandmother both lived in San Francisco SROs to escape homelessness and poverty from the 1920’s to 40’s.
