PLANCTX is now receiving its 2nd year of an Episcopal Health Foundation (EHF) grant. EHF allows PLANCTX to serve many clients and families who otherwise would not be able to pay for badly needed behavioral health services. EHF is a lifesaver! THANK YOU EHF!

I am the mother of 2 grown daughters and have been married for 46 years to my husband, John. I have recently retired from Austin Independent School District after 32 years of service in Purchasing and Athletics. Prior to working in AISD, I was the manager of a mini storage company and worked for an insurance company. The common thread in all of my jobs has been public service. It has always been important to me to be “user friendly” with my clients, co-workers and the public.
In my private life, I have always been a volunteer. I was PTA president for 2 years at my daughters’ elementary school and served as PTA secretary at the elementary and high school level. I have volunteered with CASA of Travis County and NAMI Austin and with several other school and work related activities.
I first heard about PLANCTX through NAMI when I took the Family to Family course and was very interested in the work being done to help the families and individuals facing mental health challenges as is my family. One of my goals after retirement was to start giving back to my community and PLANCTX is my first step. I am so appreciative for this opportunity.

The diagnosis of a family member with schizophrenia gave Jeff a personal awareness of mental illness. He became an instructor of Family-to-Family classes for the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI), and has spoken to NAMI Peer groups about his experience. Jeff also participates in voluntary service to the community as a museum teacher and as a meals deliverer. He brings his passion for education, planning and service delivery to PLANCTX with great hopes for the benefit of its clients.
