Hello and thank you for visiting our site.  I would love the opportunity to tell you about myself in person but for now short a bio will have to do...

‚Äč

First you should know that I love to travel and experience new places in our world.  I have paid my dues as a road warrior having flown a million miles by the young age of 27 and it didn't stop there...  Another thing you should know is that I am passionate about bringing people together to solve problems, learn, and spread joy.  We founded REACH Meetings & Events because we know there is a need for our unique consultative, collaborate, and creative approach.  

 

Technically, I specialize in bringing strategic thinking and analytical skills to large scale program management.  I am a passionate leader. My experience includes eight years of corporate and social event & talent development strategy design preceded by ten years of global business executive consulting. 

 

I hold a MBA from Kenan-Flagler Business School at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill where I was the recipient of the Richard H. Jenrette Fellowship and upon graduation received the teamwork award.  I also hold an undergraduate degree in Finance from Texas A&M University. 

 

Past and current community service roles include Boys & Girls Clubs of Austin board member (past roles include executive board member, events strategy, and gala chair), the Eanes ISD Campus Leadership and Eanes Education Foundation. 
 

I live in Austin, Texas with my husband and three children.  I have many personal interests including home renovation, hiking, fine arts, and supporting our three children to become happy, amazing people.
