Kelsey Gerbig - Director (Term 2022-2024): Kelsey and her husband, Jonathan, have lived in Prosperity Heights since Spring 2021.

When not caring for patients at her job, she's taking care of her zoo at home which includes two dogs (Crosby and Ollie), a pride of cats, and several fish.

Born in PA, but growing up, attending college and retiring in northern VA, he has chosen to call Prosperity Heights is home for the last 38 years. As a new board member, he hopes to ensure that each and every homeowner has the opportunity to be heard by the board if they have an issue, a unique idea, or helpful suggestion that will make our community an even better place to live in harmony together. He strongly believes that the board should be reflective of, and report to, the members it represents.
Andrew Kysor - Director (Term 2022 - 2024): Andy and his wife, Devon, moved into Prosperity Heights at the beginning of 2020. They previously lived in Fairfax City after moving from Oklahoma and determined Northern Virginia would be a great area to raise a family. They now have a daughter and love that she’ll grow up in this neighborhood. Andy works as an internal auditor in the telecommunications industry. He enjoys working on cars and attends the occasional track day when time permits. Andy joined the board as he and his family felt like they were accepted as part of the community from the day they moved in and he wants to do what he can to help maintain that amazing environment.
