I have been working with nonprofit and governmental organizations for many years. My background includes for profit and not-for-profit organizations. I currently have the pleasure of representing the Leander community as the President & CEO of the Leander Chamber of Commerce, and in 2019 was selected as one of the Most Influential Women in Business in central Texas. I have presented sessions on creating loyalty through experience, social media, and nonprofit management at the Nonprofit Day at the Direct Marketing Association’s Annual Conference, the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Charity Channel, and the Bridge conference. In addition, to many local nonprofits and foundations dedicated to the nonprofit sector. My witty, in your face honesty exposes the truths of non-profit management and helps executives and marketers realize their full potential.
I have a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance, with additional coursework in management and marketing, from The Red McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin, and an MBA from Texas State University-San Marcos.
I was the co-founder of Support Behind the Badge. I have also had the honor of being selected as one of the Top 50 Women in Business by the Austin Business Journal, three times (most recently in 2019). I have won numerous marketing awards, including two Best in Show awards. I am very passionate about the non-profit sector and helping non-profits increase awareness, consideration, and donations!
