A native of Houston, Gillian fell in love with volunteering as a teenager. She has volunteered with the Shape Community Center, Cy-Fair ISD, Houston ISD and churches throughout the Houston area. She was inspired to join Pride after attending one of their game nights. She was so amazed to see people so free and happy. Gillian knew she wanted to be a part of something bigger than herself; she wanted to belong to a community that was just like her.
Since Gillian had always been a volunteer or worked on the support staff of various organizations, her intense passion would eventually bring her to the Pride Houston Organization. She works as Volunteer Chair providing support to the Board and Production Team for all events. She states with great cheer and laughter that she is her happiest spending her days keeping Houston an amazing place to live, one program at a time.
