MINDY LAKE - LA METRO PURPLE LINE COMMUNITY RELATIONS OFFICER 

Mindy was born and raised in Los Angeles and spent most of her life in the Wilshire/Fairfax Miracle Mile community (except for a few stints in Laurel Canyon, Brentwood and Beverly Hills).

She has two children who are both married, and a new granddaughter. They all reside in Los Angeles and work in the entertainment industry in four distinctly different arenas.

Mindy began her Community Involvement proclivities in the early 80’s after witnessing a violent crime taking place immediately adjacent to her residence on 6th Street. That incident became the catalyst for long standing relationships with the LAPD Wilshire Division, City Council District 5, The Original Farmers Market, The Grove, CBS Television City and Cedars Sinai Medical Center. One thing led to another, and Mindy founded the first Neighborhood Watch grid and became the Executive Director of a volunteer neighborhood patrol which covered all the streets between Wilshire to 3rd and Fairfax to La Cienega. Shortly thereafter, the Christopher Commission created the concept of Community Policing and Mindy served as a board member of the newly formed CPAB at Wilshire. From there she became a founding member of the Mid City West Community Council where she served as the Treasurer for six years. 

Community work and organizing continued with the founding and management of the West Third Street Business Association while simultaneously serving as the Beverly Hills High School Theater Arts Parent Committee President and managing her children’s acting careers.

Fast forward to 2013 when Mindy spent a year working for the newly elected State Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian while awaiting the LA Metro Community Relations position for the Purple Line Extension to materialize. Since 2014, Mindy has been working as the Community Relations Officer for Metro’s Purple Line Extension for the stations under construction at Wilshire/La Cienega, Wilshire/Rodeo and Constellation Century City.
