Dallas is the Senior Manager who leads our Community Affairs and Engagement work supporting the 18 national parks in Texas and Oklahoma, and the communities around them.

Dallas enjoys leading strategy and working with local communities to build effective coalitions who protect our national treasures. She particularly enjoys her work educating and engaging younger generations and Veterans to become successful advocates, both within their local communities and with their elected officials. Dallas works collaboratively with leaders on both sides of the political aisle - highlighting that national parks include natural resources and physical landscapes, as well as the stories of our nation and its people.

During her career, she has served a variety of clients in community, government and corporate relations, representing both for-profit and not-for-profit entities at the local, state and federal levels. Focusing on building strategic relationships and public awareness, her industry experience includes conservation, public education, engineering, energy, fundraising, real estate, transportation, urban planning and water infrastructure. Dallas’s efforts in coalition building have led teams to win more than $300 million in public infrastructure projects.
