My name is Christie Eckler. My personal mission is Helping those Who Help Others. I have worked in the nonprofit sector as a program and development leader in various roles working with some of the most vulnerable populations and causes.
My business focus is fund development, marketing, and advancement for Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) and my local community. I also enjoy volunteering to help with various community initiatives and serving on committees and boards.
I graduated with my master’s degree in Social Work with a concentration in Community and Administrative Practice from University of Texas at Arlington. I am a proud wife and mom to two grown and fabulous daughters.
My favorite quote is: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” —Gandhi
