What is your involvement in TAG?:
I have been involved in TAG since it was started in part by Sam, Molly, and Steve Owen after their mom, Laurie, was diagnosed with a degenerative brain disease. I grew up with the Owens and Laurie, and felt like joining TAG was a good way to show my appreciation for all that Laurie had done for me, and to support one of my best friends.
Tell us why you enjoy serving on the TAG board:
I enjoy serving on the TAG board because it allows me the opportunity to help shape the direction that TAG is going. I hope that I can help get the word out about what TAG is and hopefully help plan some fun events to get people excited about learning more about TAG and becoming a member.
Tell us a little bit about your background:
I grew up in Dallas, and went to college at the University of Texas. I have been back in Dallas for about 5 years. I work at Benchmark Title, and have been with them since moving back to Dallas.
Why should people join and become involved in TAG?:
I think people should get involved with TAG because it is a great organization that supports a very important cause. At some point, everyone will know someone who is affected by brain disease, and it can be a very overwhelming situation because of how much is unknown, and how quickly the brain can degenerate. Currently, there is so much that we do not know about these common diseases, that any amount of support really does go a long way. Also, TAG is made up of a bunch of fun young people that enjoy having a good time. We have lots of happy hours throughout the year, and host the best annual Kentucky Derby party in town!
