Through an extensive recruitment effort led by Tulsa-based consulting firm Schnake Turbo Frank, Krista Hemme has been selected as Vice President of Marketing and Communications for the Tulsa Area United Way (TAUW). She will lead the marketing/communications team in promoting the TAUW and its 59 partner agencies that improve people’s lives through education, financial stability and health/safety.
Hemme is a graduate of Oral Roberts University and received a B.S. in Mass Media Communications. She is an award-winning communicator who most recently spearheaded campaigns for the City of Broken Arrow through news stories, video production, digital media and public relations.
“I love the Tulsa community and the people who work every day to make it the kind of place where we want our children and our children’s children to grow up,” said Hemme. “When everyone has access to the resources needed to succeed, it has a ripple effect on the entire community that leads to better outcomes in education and the economy. I look forward to working with Alison Anthony and the passionate team members of the Tulsa Area United Way to provide even more people with the tools they need to reach their full potential.”
The Tulsa Area United Way (TAUW) is the only nonprofit organization in the six-county area funding 59 partner agencies whose critical services deliver the three building blocks to a better life: education, financial stability and health/safety.
