  Stefanie deOlloqui - Governance Committee Chair   To Stefanie deOlloqui, Mizpah is a place to celebrate and preserve her Jewish heritage which is a benefit to herself, her family, and the increasingly diversified Chattanooga. Stefanie works as a nonprofit consultant and see her work as a Mitzvah. Notable projects include our bicycle share program, the award winning electric car share system, and a trail project connected to National Park properties giving East Chattanooga access to their green spaces. However, Stefanie's greatest joy is her family.
