Cynthia has been with the GHBA for close to five years. Prior to becoming the director of membership in October of 2016, she was the administration and communications coordinator for a little over a year. Cynthia grew up in a small town near Paris in northeast Texas, so…she spends most holidays in Paris, oh the life. 😊
Outside of work, Cynthia volunteers and fosters for PugHearts of Houston Pug Rescue. This rescue’s motto is ‘Any Pug, at Any Age, in Any Condition, Anytime.” They follow through with this mission by rescuing and rehoming 300 pugs per year on average. She has fostered several pugs over the last six years. She enjoys watching these sometimes frightened, injured, or sick fur-babies transition to happy, trusting, healthy dogs. She says it is often bittersweet as they are adopted and trot off to their new lives with their new forever families. She is so happy for them but misses each of their little personalities.
Cynthia learned about PugHearts through her side business, an online pet boutique. She sometimes sets up at local events as a vendor. While this business is more of a hobby at this point, she enjoys visiting with customers at these events. She loves meeting fellow pet lovers and their pets as well as talking with people about their pets. This has also been a great avenue for working with some of the other local rescues which she enjoys as she loves to help where she can.
Cynthia loves to travel and explore new places. She especially enjoyed a recent trip to Costa Rica where she got to go ziplining. She enjoys spending time with family and friends. She also loves to read and watch movies.
Cynthia enjoys working with GHBA members and cites customer service as her top priority. Working with members to help them figure out how to get more involved gives her great satisfaction as she loves helping people. She is always happy to help members with any questions they have.
“It is a joy to visit with, get to know, and work with the members of the GHBA as there are so many wonderful people involved with the organization!” Cynthia says.
