Please welcome one of our founding members: Beth Emmons.
1) Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I am a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist in private practice, and I have lived in Houston since 2014. I am originally from the suburbs of Chicago, but since college I have lived all over the US. As a result, my husband and I spend a lot of time traveling to see friends and family, and most especially our 4 godchildren in Oakland, CA and Chicago, IL. We live in the Heights with our dog Steve.
2) How did you first get involved?
I learned about Impact100 through my friend Alex (Inman), and I was drawn to the idea of all kinds of women working together to create change through giving. I have spent a lot of time working for non-profits, and now I’m interested in how grants are awarded.
3) Are you serving on any committees?
I serve on our Membership Committee promoting member engagement.
4) Out of the five focus areas, are there any that you are especially passionate about?
My career developed with a focus on providing mental health care in underserved communities, which is why Impact100’s focus area on Health and Wellness is important to me.
