In addition, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America awarded her organization with the Brodsky Innovation Grant for its “visitation station” concept, which was designed to reduce social isolation and enhance human connection for families who needed it most.

She has held several other positions at UT, including development officer with the Hildebrand Department of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering, assistant director of donor relations and events with the Longhorn Foundation, and development assistant with the T-Association. She also worked in higher education at Indiana University-Bloomington and dabbled in Hollywood by assisting one of Los Angeles’ leading sports choreographers with a full-length feature film and several national commercials for brands such as Nike, Adidas, and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
