As an undergraduate student, she studied abroad in Spain, conducting research and interviews on the role of women in the military and the police forces of Spain, and her final thesis focused on the root causes that affect levels of civil liberty throughout the world. Upon graduation from Creighton, Charlotte moved back to Houston and worked in the oil and gas industry for two years. Seeking to make a positive change in her own life, as well as in the world around her, Charlotte began her CHILDREN AT RISK career in the fall of 2015 as a Development Intern. Working for CHILDREN AT RISK full time now allows her to spend her days working to improve the lives of Texas’ children.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be either a Secret Agent or a Marine Biologist.
What was your favorite book as a child?
My favorite book as a child was Caddie Woodlawn, a novel about a redheaded tomboy little girl who believed that you shouldn’t have to fear the unknown and unfamiliar but instead should explore and appreciate the beauty of differences.
What is your dream for Texas children?
I would like for all of Texas’ children to wake up every morning knowing that they have everything they need to be a happy child and grow into a successful adult. I want everyone in our state to believe that each and every child is equally deserving of a bright future.
