Who are we?
The Think Ahead Group (TAG) is a group of young professionals who are passionate about brain health.

What do we do?

What is your involvement with TAG?:
I am the Graphic Design chair for TAG so I have the privilege of designing invites for TAG events!

Tell us a little about your background:
I graduated from Highland Park High School in 2011 and later went on to graduate from the University of Mississippi in 2015 with a Bachelors in Special Education. While I was at Ole Miss I was also a member of the Chi Omega sorority where I served as Social Chair and was a member of the Art Committee. I moved back to Dallas after college and am currently working for my Dad!

What are some of your favorite things to do in Dallas?:
I love Dallas because it's full of artistic hotspots like Deep Ellum, Bishop Arts, The Farmer's Market, the Design district, etc.! My favorite thing to do here is to explore these unique areas with friends, family, and my dog, Rowan.

Why should young professionals get involved with TAG?:
I think you be professionals should get involved with TAG so that we can help to spread mental health awareness amongst our peers!
