Ann C. Hayman was born, raised and educated in Los Angeles. I have lived in Westwood for 20 years. I raised my son here. I received BA and MPA degrees from UCLA, and a doctorate degree from USC. I worked for 40 years in the government, non-profit, and for-profit sectors. I am currently a volunteer docent at the Getty Center leading student gallery tours for grades K-12, and a volunteer docent at the Simon Wiesenthal Center Museum of Tolerance leading museum tours and “Steps to Tolerance” workshops, a program for grades five and six. I have also volunteered at the West Los Angeles VA Community Living Centers.
I am currently President of the Park Green Homeowners Association in Westwood and have served on the Westwood Neighborhood Council Land Use Subcommittee for over two years. My ties to Westwood are deep and have involved volunteer activities for many years. I am a member, and currently serve as Secretary, of the Board of the non-profit Friends of Westwood Library (FWL) which supports the City of Los Angeles Westwood Branch Library. In this capacity, I am very active in library activities that serve the Westwood community. As a passionate reader, I am also an active participant in one of the two library’s Book Clubs.
I believe it is important to give back to the community and that volunteering and community involvement is a major way to achieve this goal. I am passionate about improving Westwood as an ideal residential, business, educational, entertainment and cultural area of Los Angeles.
