With Wimberley’s rising population, there will be new economic demands that will need to be addressed, and new solutions sought out. As an entrepreneur, I have a strong financial background from building two successful businesses, along with the management skills and flexible personality needed to run a large company. I have generated $3,000,000 in business funding; managed multiple businesses with revenues in excess of $1,000,000 annually; and managed up to 100 employees of diverse backgrounds. I co-created Big Day Downtown, an annual street festival; assisted in program development for Global Exchange, an international human rights organization; and have partnered with Unicef and the Fair Trade Federation to establish fundraising programs to end child trafficking. While creativity and entrepreneurship are essential parts of my job as a designer, collaborating with people is, too.
