Meet Our New Board Member – Alice Sims

Alice is a native Houstonian who currently resides in the Meyerland/Westbury area with her daughter Hailey (16yrs). She received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and International Business from the University of Houston and went on to receive her Master’s in Business Administration from Texas Woman’s University. She is Project Manager at Texas Children’s Hospital where she has worked for the past 13 years.

She received Hailey’s Translocation Down syndrome diagnosis at birth. Since then she has been on a mission to seek the best care and environment for Hailey, which brought her to GiGi’s Playhouse Sugar Land. Hailey looks forward to participating in GiGiFIT, Teen-tastic, and tutoring programs offered at the Playhouse where she meets new friends and gains strength and knowledge. Alice enjoys learning, conversing, and building relationships with other parents that are a part of GiGi’s community. In their spare time, you can find Hailey and Alice jamming at local concerts, catching the latest movie for their “movie dates”, or practicing for an audition to be Justin Bieber’s backup dancers.  Alice is extremely grateful to be a part of this year’s Board and looks forward to continuing the amazing work and opportunities that Gigi’s Playhouse Sugar Land provides for our Down Syndrome community.
