President Kevin Oliver
I’ve been a member of the community since 2015 and this is the first time I have held any position on the board. I chose to run because I, like many other members of the community were unhappy with the direction the community was going in and was told if I didn’t like what was going on to run and try to change it. So that is what I did and that is what I am trying to do. This will be the first term as your community President that I have served and I can already see changes in the community sense of pride and priorities. I look forward to continuing to serve as HOA President until I feel confident and comfortable in moving on to continue my other volunteer projects. Thank you for your time and have a great day,
Vice-President Jennifer MacMaster
I moved to Bridgewood 10 years ago. I have a wonderful husband and three kids that keep me busy. I am a certified applicator and co-owner of a pest control company with my husband. I handle all financials, reporting, and marketing for our business. Prior to that, I worked for several years as a high school science teacher (I’m also certified to teach math), in various science labs performing clinical testing, and have 10+ years in accounting/reporting at major corporations like Clear Channel and HEB. I graduated from UTSA with a degree in biology and chemistry. I joined the HOA to be the change that I wanted to see in the community. I have also learned immensely about the process. I look forward to meeting and connecting with you at the pool, parks, board meetings, community events, or even through my efforts to assist in getting your info up to date in the system.
Secretary Adrian Alanis
I originally moved into Bridgewood about 15 years ago. I have a wonderful wife (whom I’ve been with for over 20 years) and a son (who participates in Bridgewood Youth Soccer). I am also a volunteer Coach for BYS and the BYS liaison to the HOA. I am the Director of Business Development for a Home Health Agency. I am a graduate of UTSA with degrees in Biology and Kinesiology. My wife and I are avid health enthusiasts and can be seen in the gym daily. I joined the HOA Board of Directors to help improve the community my family (and yours) live in. I am not going to complain and expect change. I am going to be the change I wish to see in my community. I hope to meet many of you at our Board meetings and Community events.
Board Member Lisa Carter
