Meet Our 2024 Board

Eckington Parks & Arts' Board Members are neighbors who volunteer their time. They are elected by Friends of Eckington Parks & Arts each winter and serve calendar year terms. Efforts are assisted by the neighborhood-driven Greenways Committee and Children & Families Committee, which are led by Chairs appointed by the Board. Please contact us if you would like to help out or get involved in specific committee efforts!

Alyssa Weiner Sandler

Communication & Public Relations Director


Alyssa is American Jewish Committee’s Associate Director for Combating Antisemitism. In this role, she helps implement the agency's response to antisemitism in the U.S. and creates resources and guidance on antisemitism for AJC's 25 regional offices and beyond. She is a past president of Jewish Women International's DC Young Women's Leadership Network and serves as the new Communications and Public Relations Director for her neighborhood nonprofit Eckington Parks and Arts.

Ian Bell



Ian hails from New York (but was born in Scotland). Since late 2020 he has been a resident of Eckington, when he bought a condo near the school site where he lives with his partner Carolyn. His dog Angus (pictured in photo) is an energetic presence at Alethia Tanner dog park on most days, rain or shine, and he got involved in EP&A by joining the community cleanups. He works as a mechanical engineer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, developing technologies needed for the clean energy transition. In his free time Ian can be found moving around DC on two wheels or perhaps at the pottery wheel.


Grace Daigle



Grace is newer to the Eckington neighborhood, moved from Capitol Hill last summer, and is loving this slice of the city! Grace works as a Civil Engineer for a consulting firm where she creates a lot of maps and runs analyses for the city. After biking home from work each day, she can be found making bagels, lacing up to go rock climbing, or trying her hand at urban gardening.
