CREATIVE, MEANINGFUL

CONTENT & LEADERSHIP

I am fortunate to serve as Chief Advancement Officer at Juliette Fowler Communities, a 134-year-old faith-centered intergenerational nonprofit in Dallas, Texas. Fowler was founded by women, has provided care, connection, and purpose to generations of people, and I am honored to serve that mission through marketing, communications, and development.

I am a mom and wife first, as well as a family member and friend. As a writer and sometimes-art-dabbler, every creative step I take - at my place of work and beyond - lifts my life, and hopefully the lives of others. It goes hand-in-hand with the meaningful work I get to do at Juliette Fowler Communities.
