Neeahtima grew up singing and dancing, and as a teenager was an Apprentice to the Dallas Ballet. But having been raised by a single mom, “starving artist” was not an attractive career, so she chose to pursue another track and was a first-generation college student.

After earning a Bachelor of Journalism and working in both reporting and public relations in college, she enjoyed a career in a myriad of roles: writing, editing, corporate communications, branding, political campaigns, and finally a VP at a public affairs consulting firm.

Marriage and motherhood then took center stage, as she raised three busy red-headed children and managed the family enterprise. She, nevertheless, continued to use her skills in ways outside the family, from founding a mom’s group, to serving in church leadership, to creating and teaching a middle school musical theater group.

An habitual do-it-yourselfer, Neeahtima is known to design and sew an evening gown, refinish furniture, install landscaping, or build out an entire unfinished room.

After a couple of decades of taking pride ensuring that others flourish, Neeahtima is seizing this next chapter to dream her own new dreams and inspire other women to do likewise.
