Meet our New Board and Staff Members
As we expand our services across Texas and nationwide, our board and staff are growing too! Meet the newest members of the Wonders & Worries family.
Kristen and her family have been involved with Wonders & Worries since Kristen was diagnosed with leukemia more than a decade ago. Her husband, Trek, previously served on the Board, and their son, Cason, participates in the Teen Council. Kristen serves as Deputy Executive Officer and General Counsel for the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, at the University of Texas.
Sarah felt called to support Wonders & Worries after watching the organization help her close friends while they navigated the diagnosis – and eventual loss – of a wife and a mother to ovarian cancer. Sarah knows firsthand the enormous impact a chronic illness can have on families and children.
With more than 20 years of experience in Austin’s startup software community, and a current employee of Spredfast, Inc., Sarah has a passion for building successful technology companies and mentoring young professionals. As a Board member, Sarah looks forward to contributing to Wonders & Worries’ growth and vision to serve families in more Texas cities.
Heather Shaw grew up in Austin, Texas, and is a proud graduate of Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Her background in both for-profit sales and nonprofit fundraising allow her to bring a unique skill set to development for Wonders & Worries.
Heather was drawn to Wonders & Worries because she herself is a two-time cancer survivor, and the idea of supporting the whole family during the challenging time of dealing with an illness resonates.
