Meet the Team
Research Specialist / Data Management
Every Saturday, "pantry day," I look forward to greeting and serving the familiar and the new faces of our neighbors from all over Greater Dallas. As a VISTA research specialist, I produce data reports on our organization's effectiveness and provide a foundation for new partnerships to better serve our community. My goal on an interpersonal level is to honor our neighbors while improving our resources and referrals so they can boost their own family's health and nutrition status. I LOVE this work.
Communications & Development Coordinator
ETM is helping not only the community. They care about the staff and their families also. I love how they welcome my family when we go to the food pantry volunteer, events, and any activities. Especially for children who learn through a volunteer experience at an early age. Every time I attend the ETM graduation, I see they are growing and more people are joining. I'm excited to see how much more they grow and see the smiles in the community. I enjoy being part of this organization to help with these processes.
Volunteer Coordinator/ Corporate Volunteer Strategist
One of the reasons I was happy to understand that my little bit of service would be able to help others. I really enjoy interacting with our volunteers and assisting them with how to volunteer with us. My favorite moment will be when we had a vaccination drive I was a little afraid to get a flu shot. Mrs.Gwen spoke so kindly to me help me to understand why I needed the shot.
As the Food Pantry Coordinator Mr. Cooper helps oversee the daily operations of the food pantry, including but not limited to, restocking of food pantry items, organizing, scheduling, and receiving pick-ups and deliveries, quality control, and collaborating with a team of food pantry volunteers.
Student Success Coach/ Student Resource Coordinator
I like to give back to something that inspires me! Not only am I helping someone, but also building meaningful relationships and strengthening our community. That provides me with life satisfaction and fulfillment. I enjoy working with a team that has common values and goals.
Digital Marketing Specialist
I love to serve with Empowering The Masses because it allows me to use my gifts to help further the vision and work alongside the team to spread awareness of the amazing things ETM is doing to love on our neighbors and create a real impact that empowers our community.
I serve at ETM because I enjoy helping people who are in need. I like helping to serve the community.
Social Media Management
My favorite memory is joining Empowering the Masses. It brings me joy to be a part of something so grand and excelling to others that teaches that education plus advocacy equals empowerment one person at a time.
I love serving with Empowering the Masses because I have witnessed the organization's impact on the community. One of my most memorable moments was reaching out to former students and one student telling her testimony of how the training programs positively impacted her life. She was almost in tears sharing her experience of how the program allowed her to earn a livable wage and be more present for her daughter. The impact makes what I do worth it.
I enjoy serving at ETM because it has allowed me to grow as a person in ways I couldn't have imagined. After being away from the workforce for quite some time, I've developed new skills, honed existing ones and learned to adapt and innovate in face of challenges.
I love serving with Empowering The Masses because I am able to align my skills with my values, helping to make an impact on causes that resonate with my heart. One of my favorite things about ETM is being able to work alongside like-minded individuals who are driven by a shared passion for making the world a better place.
I serve at ETM because this organization is helping to change lives! I am excited to be apart of such a diverse and amazing non- profit that is aiding to end hunger. My favorite thing about ETM is connecting with our neighbors, hearing their stories and the difference we make in their lives. Serving here always puts me in a state of gratitude and a mindset of hope for the future. My favorite memory was being at the grand opening of the Community Market; The commitment of excellence to the people we serve is astounding. I’m humbled to be apart of this ever-growing organization!

While interning at ETM, I know that I am going to be able to gain the skill sets required to become a successful social worker. I can see that ETM sets up every student for success. ETM's team is more than just a team there family, and we all share the same values and goal, which makes this a very special opportunity for myself and I can't wait to see the positive impact we will bring to the community.
