Harriett Kirsh Pozen has always dedicated herself to volunteerism and the non-profit world. A native Texan from McAllen, she has held leadership roles both as a community leader and professional. Often at the helm of new and innovative programs in whatever community she resides, Harriett was instrumental in the conception and creation of the Dell Jewish Community Campus.
She served on the boards of Congregation Agudas Achim and Shalom Austin where she helped create and chaired J-LEAD, a Jewish young leadership development program. She is the recipient of numerous awards.
Harriett is very excited to be the Campaign Director for a $25,000,000 expansion on the Dell Jewish Community Campus. Harriett lovingly served as Executive Director of Candlelight Ranch which provides outdoor educational, recreational and therapeutic programs for children with special needs.
Yoga, working out, and running on Lady Bird Lake are favorite pastimes. She partakes of the abundance of life in Austin with her husband, Robert Lopez, family and friends while taking part in Austin’s rich music scene and traveling. She is blessed with two sons, Scott and Nathan.
