- About Me

With over a decade of combined experience in housing, community development, cultural preservation and urban planning; her work philosophy embraces an immersion into space and place through relationship building.
Her research focus in Kansas City has centered on the Jewish community and the loss and repurposing of Jewish sacred spaces. This research has delved deep into race relations and the cultural side effects this has had on the city over time. Additionally, Ms. Ammerman explores the spatial relationship of displacement of the political history of South America to better understand the Latino cultural influence and experience since the 1970s.
