I have a deep love for my community and love being a part of building and nurturing it.  Because of this I am involved in several organizations.  I serve on boards, committees, donate, and just participate.


YES: Your Executive Symphony


​Your Executive Symphony (YES) was founded in 2009 and is built upon the belief that the privately held business sector is not only the economic backbone of our country, but also the fabric that weaves communities together.

YES is an educational forum for the small and medium privately held sector. Our goal is to grow more privately held businesses and help them thrive.

There are many other groups whose primary focus is sales, marketing and networking.  YES strives to create a different community – one that focuses on enabling CEOs to build relationships that foster sharing and learning from our collective experiences and knowledge.  

I am a proud member of the board for YES.


Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Dallas

Big Brothers Big Sisters helps vulnerable children beat the odds. The organization depends on donations to recruit and train volunteers safely and effectively create life-changing, impactful relationships. The agency also provides ongoing support for children, families and volunteers to help build and sustain long-lasting relationships, key to successful mentoring. Big Brothers Big Sisters is proven by independent research to improve children’s odds for succeeding in school, behaving nonviolently, avoiding drugs and alcohol, and breaking negative cycles. Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star is the largest Big Brothers Big Sisters agency in the nation.

I am a proud board member of the Collin County Board of Big Brothers Big Sisters.



Collin County Homeless Coalition


The Collin County Homeless Coalition was founded in 2004 and consists of community partners working together to provide solutions to homelessness in Collin County through 1) increasing awareness of homelessness, 2) coordinating advocacy for the homeless issue, 3) facilitating information, and 4) empowering collaborative programs and services.


I serve in any way possible for CCHC.
