Impact Austin has been transformational for my life and career. It informed my passion for social impact. Today I get to share that passion with my students as the Director of the Social Innovation Initiative at UT.

I joined Impact Austin to be a part of something greater than myself.
I wanted to join women who were making a difference and having an impact in the community.

I really enjoyed being on a GRC...it gave me a deep understanding of how Impact Austin members choose the nonprofit organizations. The process is thorough and allowed me to learn about over 40 different nonprofits here in Central Texas.
