Jeff Brown

President (Elected)
Term:  5/2024-27

In my 3+ years on the board, I have enjoyed being a part of a group of people that focuses on making Augusta Ranch a great place to live. I feel that Augusta Ranch is one of the best communities in the Valley to live in and I enjoy being part of the team that makes that happen. I believe that being a small business owner in the golf industry that I am able to work closely with the golf course management team to make the communities’ ownership of the golf course successful. Finally, my family has really enjoyed everything about the community since we moved here almost 5 years ago. We have made numerous friends and really enjoy all of the events that the community puts on.

Vice President (Elected)
Term: 5/2020-23

I have been chair of the Events Committee for the last 2 years. I love trying to get the community involved together. I have put on the monthly movie nights, helped plan several new events which include Oktoberfest and Augustapalooza (unfortunately it had to be postponed for now). We plan all the holiday events and try to get everyone in the community involved. I moved to Arizona from Pittsburgh in 2003. Augusta Ranch piqued my wife’s interest and we moved into the neighborhood with our 2 girls in 2014. I have lived in several places and have seen firsthand how unique Augusta Ranch is. Most HOAs just collect your money and complain when the trash was out too early or late. Since moving to Augusta Ranch, I realize how much more an HOA can be. I look forward to continuing to help our community thrive.

LeeAnn Bohman

Treasurer (Elected)
Term: 5/2020-23

I have been a resident of Augusta Ranch for almost seven years. My husband and I chose this community before we even moved here because we could see its potential to be a great place to raise our five kids. We have cherished the opportunity to live here! We love the parks and beauty of our neighborhoods. We love that it’s safe for our family. We love the people who live here! In those seven years, I have been an active part of our community, serving in volunteer positions both in the schools and in the HOA. I served on the HOA board for a couple of years until I took a break to pursue a master’s degree to teach. While on the board, I attended all the meetings, helped with all the activities, produced the monthly newsletter, and took other assignments. I would love to be able to participate on the HOA board again!

My husband and I have lived in Augusta Ranch for over 19 years and feel a special bond to our neighbors and community. I feel that my prior experience in educational administration works well with the needs of the board such as listening to concerns and making informed and fiscal decisions that are vital to maintaining the beauty, quality, and safety of our neighborhood. Volunteering time to serve as a board member provides a clear way for me to serve and give back to my community. Thank you for your consideration.

My family and I have lived in the Augusta Ranch Community for the past 19 years where we have raised our 2 children (now aged 20 and 22) and have watched the community grow into what it is today. I am currently on the HOA Board and am a part of the Events Committee helping plan all the Augusta Ranch events including the HOA picnic, Oktoberfest, On Course for the Holidays, Easter, and many others. When not planning events for the community, you can find me supporting our local economy (Scratch Pub and Grill) several days a week with my husband and friends. I would love to continue serving the Augusta Ranch Community for many years to come and am grateful for your consideration in choosing me as a member of the HOA.

Brad Whitehouse

Director (Elected)
Term: 5/2020-2

I retired from the Oklahoma City Fire Department in 2006 having spent 26 years in suppression as a major. I have an Associate’s Degree in Municipal Fire Protection. I worked at both the 95 Murrah bombing and 2001 World Trade Center disasters then using this knowledge after I retired to teach disaster management for Homeland Security. I’m 69 and in very good health. I’ve lived here for 10 years and have a membership at the our golf course that I play at nearly every day. I feel that I have a lot to offer as a candidate since I’ve worked on large budgets as a Vice President for Local 157 of the IAFF. I hold strong teamwork and family values so I’m very confident that I can be a valuable asset to this already great community and especially the HOA board. So, to sum it all up I love this community and am all in on improving it. It’s with a great deal of pride and wanting to make things better to benefit the entire community.

Barbara Ezyk

Director (Elected)
Term: 5/2024-27

In 2004, my husband and I purchased a townhome in the East Valley, specifically, the Alta Mesa community. Still working full time in Colorado, we referred to ourselves as “working snowbirds”. We fell in love with the East Valley. In 2017, we began the search for our permanent retirement home and found Augusta Ranch. We retired in July 2018, moved here permanently, and began exploring this community. We were impressed with the neighbors, the community people, the golf course, the restaurant and the HOA. Shortly after the move, I began attending HOA meetings to learn more about the community. I then joined the Events Committee and became involved in the collaboration between the HOA, the Golf Shop and the restaurant to bring entertainment for all the members of our community. In August 2022, a vacancy opened on the HOA board. I applied and was voted in. Along with the Events Committee work, I also assist with the Monthly E-Newsletter. My Background: I received my Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law in December 1994 and was licensed in 1995. My main practice was in Medical Law and then Administrative Law. The last six years of my career, I developed and was the Executive director of the Colorado Lawyer Assistance Program for the Colorado Supreme Court. Before my law school education and career, however, I worked many years as a registered nurse. In 1982, I obtained my Associate Degree in Nursing and in 1990, obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing, both while in Colorado. My nursing specialty was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. To this day my husband and I feel so fortunate to have found and belong to the Augusta Ranch Community.
