As the Development Officer for the Art Museum of South Texas, I am responsible for coordinating and facilitating Museum fundraising through private and government foundations, corporations and individual donors. I research and write grant requests to foundations for Museum exhibitions, education programs and operations. In addition, I work with trust officers and estate planning professionals on individual bequests and planned giving. I also assist with special event fundraisers, public outreach through speaking engagements, tours, and general Museum advocacy and stewardship. I've held this position for over 8 years.

I am a 1988 graduate of Corpus Christi State University with a Bachelor of Science in History. I have worked in the non-profit world both professionally, and as a volunteer, including Community Outreach Coordinator for the March of Dimes, Board Chair for CASA and I am currently serving as President of Executive Women International.

When not working at the Art Museum, I enjoy the arts, photography, and visiting (of course) museums! I also enjoy traveling with my husband Kurt, and spending time with our daughter, Hayley.
