Board Bios

Laura Addison, President
Laura grew up in Chicago and moved to Georgia 12 years ago. Together with her wife Sherry, and 3 beautiful furbabies (Charlie, Rizzo, and Zoey) she has lived in Huntley Hills for just over 7 years. She often refers to Huntley Hills as the “hidden gem” inside the perimeter. Laura enjoys being involved in the neighborhood and community and is excited to see the growth and development happening all around us.

Laura enjoyed an active 20-year career in corporate America, spending the last 13 years of it as a regional sales manager and trainer, which involved weekly travel. While she enjoyed seeing most every corner of the country, 4 years ago she had the opportunity to turn in her TSA Pre-check pass for a career in Real Estate. “Now I get to stay home – and help others buy and sell theirs! I absolutely love it!” When she’s not showing and selling houses, Laura and Sherry enjoy traveling, hitting local breweries and festivals with friends, or floating in the pool catching some rays.

Marci Hooper-Smith, Treasurer
Marci, originally from northern Ohio, has lived in Huntley Hills since 1977. While raising two sons, she served for 14 years on the Swim & Tennis Club Board in various offices and committees including President, Secretary, Pool Manager, Swim Team “Mom”, Neighborhood Watch Coordinator and Newsletter Editor. In 1996, she was on the founding board of the Huntley Hills Neighborhood Association and served as its first President. For the next 12 years she served in multiple positions on the HHNA Board and continued to produce the neighborhood newsletter.

In 1999, Marci, now an “empty nester”, was hired by the City of Chamblee and was employed there for 21 years in various roles in the Building Permits and Business Licensing Departments until her retirement in 2020. She, and her husband Bill, have 5 grown kids between them, 11 grandchildren and two cats. The family considers her the “critter whisperer”, as her love of animals (and lots of critter food) encourages close encounters with birds, squirrels, possums, raccoons, hawks, deer and the occasional stray cat in her backyard. She loves working in her yard, watching NASCAR races, going to classic car shows and reading light murder mysteries. After being off the Board for several years, Marci came back in 2021 to fill the vacant Treasurer position and has continued to serve in that role since.

Rachel Martinez Branch, Communications
Rachel and her husband Jonathan moved to Huntley Hills in 2022. They had their son Julian in August 2023, and they love living in a neighborhood with so many families. They love spending summer days at the HHSTC pool.

Rachel has been a resident of the Atlanta area since 2016, when she relocated from California, where she grew up. A 2014 graduate of UCLA, Rachel began her career with PwC in San Francisco before relocating to Atlanta, and she currently works as a program manager in the Finance department at Meta.

At home, she makes a mean quesadilla and enjoys spending time in the yard with Julian watching Jonathan care for his plants. You can find her walking in the neighborhood with and without the stroller. She loves spending time eating and drinking in downtown Chamblee and shopping for baby clothes.

Carolyn Weber, Membership
Carolyn has lived in Huntley Hills for over 30 years. She was born in New Jersey, but moved south when she was in middle school. She came to Atlanta for college, loved it and never left! For most of her career, Carolyn worked in corporate America, doing IT work for AT&T. After she retired from there, she worked for two years at St. Vincent de Paul, a non-profit which assists people with rent, utilities and food.

Carolyn has served several terms on the board, including as President, Treasurer and Membership Chair.

She is excited about the energy and new ideas that the new members will bring to the board and is looking forward to planning more fun events for Huntley Hills this year.

In addition to the HHNA, Carolyn is on the board of Keep Chamblee Beautiful. She also enjoys running, volunteering at All Saints Catholic church, traveling, cooking and working in her garden.

Yvonne Bubienko, Community Relations
Yvonne grew up in NYC and moved to Georgia 23 years ago. She purchased her house in Huntley Hills over 16 years ago and could not have found a better place to call home. She enjoys the natural beauty, trees, flowers, wildlife all while living in the city.

Huntley Hills has provided Yvonne and all of us with a true sense of community, supportive and caring neighbors that offer a helping hand, a needed hug or a kind word. Yvonne enjoys serving on the board as head of community relations as it allows her to meet so many wonderful people that she otherwise may not have a chance to as well as create and participate in events that harvest that sense of community and welcome new neighbors with open arms. She is grateful to be allowed to be part of this amazing group as well as this amazing community.

Yvonne is employed with Metro Brokers, Better Homes and Gardens and has been honored to be a residential loan officer and has enjoyed helping people purchase their own homes for well over 20 years.

A former Army paratrooper who hails from southern California, Ken moved to Atlanta to attend college and run track at Clark Atlanta University in 1994.

Stevenson Rosslow, Social
Though this native Floridian roots for the orange and blue, Stevenson Rosslow is a diehard fan of Georgia’s culinary scene. As a former member of the Georgia Restaurant Association & Georgia Craft Brewers Guild Board of Directors, certified sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers, Certified Specialist of wine and Spirits (CSW & CSS, Society of Wine Educators), Certified Spirits Professional by USBG and Beverage Alcohol Resource (BAR) certified mixologist, he simply describes dining out as a part of his lifestyle.

Stevenson’s career took a turn after his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Florida. Feeling unfulfilled by the mundane corporate world, he traveled the country in search of his true calling. This led to the revelation that his time spent working in restaurants before and through college would inspire his ultimate direction. After moving to Atlanta in 1997, he started a remarkable career with the Buckhead Life Restaurant Group. Over a 12-year period, Stevenson served as the General Manager at Bluepointe, Beverage Manager at Nava and Atlanta Fish Market, and helped open three restaurants as the overall corporate Beverage Director. For the past 13 years, Stevenson has served as the Managing Partner and now Owner of the Wrecking Bar Brewpub. In conjunction with the Wrecking Bar he owned and operated the Wrecking Barn Farm, a 65 acre farm, in Loganville, GA for seven years. This journey developed an affinity for quality ingredients grown locally and prepared by artists who have an unwavering passion for their craft.

Stevenson and his wife Holly share a love for unpretentious experiences defined by good food with one of their most unique traditions consisting of toasting flutes of Champagne over Alaskan king crab and artichokes while celebrating Valentine’s Day on the living room floor. The couple enjoys living in Huntley Hills with their thirteen year old son Lawson and their faithful dog named Bean. With a cooking style defined by fresh, wholesome ingredients, Stevenson enjoys tending to his own organic garden and thrives on the simplicity of dishes. His perfectly seasoned soups and fresh-baked breads, both prepared in his trusty Le Creuset Dutch oven, are a family favorite.

Greg Schwartz, Webmaster
Greg and his wife Amber, later joined by their daughter Millie, have lived in Huntley Hills since late 2013.
