Meet KCHA

Loren Sisley

Loren Sisley was hired by KCHA in 1991. He started by mowing lawns, but has been a Housing Quality Standards Inspector in the Housing Choice Voucher department for the last 23 years. Prior to KCHA, Loren worked as a real estate broker and a property maintenance technician. He loves both meeting the needs of his clients and learning from them. Loren has participated in a number of KCHA-sponsored activities including KCHA’s Adopt-A-Highway program, teaching English Language Learner classes to residents, and delivering meals to elderly/disabled residents during the height of the COVID-19 restrictions. Bringing joy to kids by handing them culturally responsive for-keeps books during inspections sparks a good feeling he’s never outgrown. When not working, Loren enjoys spending time with his beloved wife, four adult daughters, seven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He is active in his church, where he is also the keyboard player for its worship band. An avid cyclist, Loren has completed the 206-mile STP ride multiple times, finishing his last ride in 12 hours! Loren holds an associate degree in AutoCAD/architecture and a B.S. in project management from ITT Technical Institute. He studied Russian language at the University of Washington.
