A former board member of Folk Alliance International, she serves on the boards of the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice, Music to Life, Red Dirt Relief Fund, Outsiders House Museum, and AFT Instrument Donations, and was a charter member of the board for the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture.
“It’s an honor for me to serve on the RDRF board as a way of providing support for artists who give us so much of their time and talent. The arts lead the way to allow us to feel more deeply, understand more broadly, and experience the world through the eyes of others, and our support of the creatives is vital.”
