What is your involvement with TAG?:
I am a current and active member of TAG, and I previously served on the board for 2 years.

Tell us a little about your background.:
After graduating from Ole Miss, I returned home to Texas and was active in politics for 4 years before getting involved in business development and sales for start up companies in the clothing industry.

What made you interested to join TAG?:
I originally became interested in TAG when I had a friend invite me to TAG's signature fundraising Derby event. It was there that I learned of the bigger overall mission of TAG and supporting the Center for Brain Health. I am also close to the research and programs they are doing with Alzheimer's, as my grandmother suffered from dementia in her final years.

What are some of your favorite things to do in Dallas?:
I'm very lucky to live in a city like Dallas that combines 3 of my favorite things, trying new BBQ restaurants, going to Texas Country concerts, and going for runs on the Katy Trail.

Why should young professionals get involved with TAG?:
I encourage young professionals to get involved with TAG because its a great way to meet new people and give back to others in a fun way. Everyone can find a way in which brain health affects their life. Whether through the veteran community, athletics, autism, the elderly, or even people that have suffered from traumatic brain injuries.
