In preparation for the annual Timbergrove Manor Civic Club elections, the Nominating Committee is pleased to announce the following slate of candidates for open officer and director positions. Despite ongoing efforts, the Nominating Committee has been unable to identify a resident to put forward for the position of TMCC President as long-time volunteer William Morfey will be stepping down after this year.
Additional nominations for officers or directors may be made at the general meeting on Tuesday, November 13 when dues-paying members in attendance will vote for the candidates of their choice. Two of our existing directors, Micah Heilbrun and Jennifer Vickers, have each served one of their two year terms and will return to the board in 2019.
Leslie Hillendahl (Vice President)
I am currently a block captain for the 6200-6300 block of Wynnwood Lane, chairperson for the Beautification Committee along with my husband Brian Hillendahl and 2017 Vice President of the TMCC. I have been very involved with our neighborhood and the TMCC since we moved here in 2003. Brian and I, along with our dogs, have lived in Timbergrove for more than fourteen years this November. Our son Graham is two and a half and loves playing with his neighborhood buddies. However, Timbergrove is not really a “new” home for me as I was born here over forty years ago on Woodbrook. I attended Texas A&M University where I received my Masters of Science degree in accounting. I obtained my J.D. in 2002 from South Texas College of Law. After almost 15 years as a litigation attorney, I recently joined a hedge fund as a senior legal analyst/counsel. In addition to my son, one of my other passions is animal rescue and I serve as President of a local all breed, non-profit animal rescue organization, Scouts Honor Rescue.

Cynthia Schwendeman (Director)
I have been lucky to call Timbergrove home since 2015 when I moved here with my husband, Kris. For the past year, I have volunteered as a Timbergreeter, welcoming new neighbors to our neighborhood. Since 2002 I have been a proud Houstonian. I relocated from Baton Rouge after completing a degree in Geology from Louisiana State University to pursue a career in the energy industry. Currently, I lead a geoscience data team at Occidental Petroleum. I am also the volunteer chair of a committee of the Professional Petroleum Data Management Association. At home, when I’m not busy volunteering, you’ll find me out in the garden, maintaining a habitat for butterflies and birds. We love to travel, and are pursuing our lifelong dream to see every National Park.
Cathi Lamberth Hernandez (Director)
I am a native Houstonian and grew up in West University. Me, my husband Jesus and our two boys have called Timbergrove home since 2008, although it wasn’t until 2016 when we hopped across the bayou and made TMCC our home. Our son Lucas is 10 and our younger son Max is 5 and love playing with their neighborhood friends and enjoying baseball and soccer at Timbergrove Sports Association. I have been working as a residential real estate agent with Beth Wolff Realtors since 2004 and have been named a top a producer since 2008. I am active in the Sinclair Elementary PTO and am also the volunteer chair of the annual Silent Auction. When I’m not busy with my boys and their activities, I enjoy jogging along the bayou and spending time with our friends on Cindy Ln.
