Get to Know our SRH Staff: Mindy Brown, Donations Processing Manager

What is your role at the hospital? What do you do on a daily basis?
I’m the donations processing manager for the Development department. I have the privilege of working with an amazing team that handles all of the hospital’s donations. This includes donor correspondence, reporting and appreciation projects.
 
What skills do you need for your job?
I believe that communication is key. In addition to being able to effectively communicate, it is necessary to have an understanding of systems and data from a global perspective, in order to assist in the oversight of all our procedures. We want the care we give our donors to match that of our excellent patient care!
 
What led you to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children? How long have you worked here?  
To be honest, God! After graduating from college, I had dreams of living in Austin, TX - just like every other young person says they are heading. However, a random turn of events landed me in Dallas and I accepted a job at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. I have never loved a place more or felt more called to plant roots in a specific place professionally than I have here! God has been so good and it has been an amazing nine years as of October 2018. 
 
What do you enjoy most about Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children?
Words cannot begin to express the amount of pride and joy I have to be able to work with such an amazing staff and to be at a place where our mission provides health care to all children, regardless of what their families can afford.
 
What drives or motivates you to do what you do every day?
I love serving with those around me to ensure that our mission is fulfilled every day. The opportunity to help more people come to know not only of Scottish Rite Hospital, but believing in our life-changing work!
 
What was your first job?
Schlotzsky's. I could make a serious sandwich back in the day! I also loved talking over the loud speaker.
 
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love to spend my time with my husband, Derek, and our new puppy, Doc. Besides exploring Dallas with my family, I enjoy my church, Lakewood Fellowship, as well as being with all of my family and friends, working out, home projects, reading and traveling!

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a vet or architect.
 
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
I studied abroad in Europe for a couple of months when I was in college. To be able to engage in a different culture and experience life independent of everything I have ever known, made a huge impact on my life. Not to mention the kindness people had on my attempts to speak their language!
