Born and educated in Memphis, Tennessee, with a career in higher education management built and nurtured in Fort Worth, Texas, my passions are women's and children's health care, adoption, the arts, and building healthy business cultures. My work includes directing the TCU Center for Connection Culture to inspire a movement in higher education that fosters the core elements of connection. As a cancer survivor, I am passionate about leading the TCU Frogs for the Cure cancer advocacy national partnership. As the first university partnered with Susan G. Komen in the fight against breast cancer, TCU created the pink out game day experience, now a national trend. Our full scale music videos feature more than 2,500 people including survivors, artists, campus faculty/staff and students and health care professionals. View at youtube.com/frogsforthecure. I serve in leadership roles on boards, am a frequent public speaker and enjoy the next challenge. My specialty is taking a small concept and building it into a big program with impact. I am good at both the 50,000 foot dream and managing the smallest detail. And my most important tool is in recruiting, attracting and keeping great team members. My excitement about John's work is that it represents leadership wisdom for the ages. Being in Orlando with so many like-minded people will be energizing and inspirational.
