Welcome Vanessa!  

We are so excited to have Vanessa Garnica as the newest member of the Komen Dallas County team! She has taken on the new role of Development Associate and will work closely with our third party fundraisers.

Vanessa came to Komen Dallas County with a background in nonprofit development and a personal connection. Some of the most influential women in her life have battled breast cancer, including her soon-to-be mother-in-law which inspires her to want to provide them with hope to create change.
