Occupation: Museum Director for the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land
I have a thirty year background in non-profit management and fundraising with organizations that include American Cancer Society, MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Houston, American Heart Association, Memorial Hermann Foundation, Shriner's Hospitals for Children and Houston Area Women's Center.
Favorite Part of Volunteering: Being able to make an impact on the homeless issue in Fort Bend County, an issue many think doesn't exist.
Religion: Member of St. Catherine of Sienna Episcopal Church
Children: My husband, Brian Dodson, and I have three daughters and a son. One daughter is grown and working for Siemens, one daughter is at Midwestern State University, and our two youngest are in high school at Elkins and DeBakey High School for Health Professions.
From looking at me, no one would guess that: I run about 2 miles a day, and rarely skip a day
Favorite place to eat: Chick Fil A and El Vaquerro, thus all the running!
What would you tell people who are considering helping Fort Bend Family Promise: While its adults who bring their families into the program, much of our focus is on the children in that mix. Adults face many pressures as they work to provide, but children are really stressed when their "normalâ€ is disrupted. Working with FBFP not only helps in the short run by making families strong today, it is also building for the future of our community by keeping children stable.CONTACT
