  • Summary
    I started humbly: college as a single teen mother and waitressing graveyard shifts to make ends meet. Those challenges fostered my drive to succeed and a desire to help others in crisis.

    I have been in the field of crisis management since 1999. I started in the non-profit sector developing Y2K crisis response plans. I went on to serve in the US Federal Government as the Emergency Manager for the 12th District Federal Reserve Bank and as the External Affairs Director for the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Louisiana Recovery Office for Hurricane Katrina. For the past eight years, I have led crisis management departments for multi-national, Fortune 50 companies.
  • Highlights
    My passion is volunteer service which led to my selection as the Inaugural Emergency Manager of the Year by the International Association of Emergency Managers in 2018 and my inauguration in to the Women's Hall of Fame for Emergency Management in 2013.

    I was recently elected as Chair for the NW Arkansas American Red Cross. My prior service includes: the Board Chair for the American Red Cross, LA Region, a Member of the Tiffany Circle National Council, a Member of the US Save the Children's Corporate Board, an Advisory Board Member for Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science and Society, a Member of the National Children's Resiliency Leadership Board and a Member of the Garry Marshall Theatre board.
