Alicyn Yarbrough

Chief Communications Officer

I joined Glimmer in August of 2010 and am truly honored to be part of this organization and team. My role as the Director of Programs is to ensure that the Programs team is efficiently managing each step in the programs process from start to finish. We work closely with our Addis team to maximize the effectiveness of every donor dollar and involve donors in the experience through construction updates, videos, pictures, and communications.

Before joining Glimmer, I was most recently an Account Supervisor at Springbox, an interactive marketing agency headquartered in Austin, Texas. My prior experience also includes, Business Development, Accounting, Software Implementations and Pre-Sales at several companies, including PricewaterhouseCoopers, Lombardi Software and Arthur Andersen.

A few personal notes: I grew up playing tennis in Austin and then on the Texas Tech tennis team. I haven’t picked up a racket in years. Now my exercise of choice is yoga or walking on the trail. I still can't touch my toes. I love going to movies at the Alamo Drafthouse. I'm more of a dog person than a cat person. It's likely that there are more than 10 books on my bedside table at any given time.
