I have been a real estate appraiser and Amarillo resident for 36 years. We are all called to a life of service in the Lord, and HTC represents the most critical service to the most in need in our community.
Bio Coming Soon...
I was born and raised on a family ranch near Dalhart and have lived in Amarillo for 28 years. My 28 years at Amarillo Gear has given me many opportunities, including exposure to many parts of the world, in all its diversity. This has helped me better understand the many needs that are prevalent right here in our backyard. What a true privilege and honor it is to be associated with the Lord’s work being performed through Heal the City, its staff and many volunteers in helping so many with health needs in our community.
I am President, CEO & CLO of Baptist Community services in Amarillo, Texas, and have been with this non-profit organization and its predecessor organizations for almost 30 years. Baptist Community Services and its affiliates are privileged to assist the programs of Heal the City and to help in furthering its mission of serving those who otherwise might not be served.
I am a longtime community volunteer with a passion for helping others, especially in health care. Heal The City for me is a "Humanitarian" mission, which is why I volunteer.
I serve as Chief Executive Officer of Amarillo Urology Associates and AUA Surgical Center. In addition to a BS in Accounting and an MBA in Healthcare Management, I am a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt and Master Black Belt. I have been fortunate enough to be a sounding board for many years to Dr. Keister and his idea for a free medical clinic to help the underserved in Amarillo. I am honored to serve on the Heal The City board and it is truly amazing to see God’s hand at work through Heal the City.
DR. SHARI MEDFORD
For 17 years I have been in private pediatric practice at Amarillo Children's Clinic. I have been blessed to serve impoverished children in third world countries on short mission trips over the past 10 years. This was a very rewarding experience for me. I was very excited to when given the opportunity to serve children in our local area that have limited access to medical care. I passionate about the children, and I feel Heal the City meets a need that was previously not filled in the community.
I am long time Amarillo resident and owner of a truck dealership group that has operated in the Amarillo market for over 40 years. I am blessed to be on the Heal the City board to see firsthand the tremendous amount of "healing" our organization has done and will be doing for the citizens of our community.
MANNY DE LOS SANTOS
Pastor Manny and Raquel DeLosSantos planted Power Church in 2012 with less than twenty members. His vision is to build a church with a passion for breaking down the walls of racism, crossing cultural lines, and changing poverty mindsets in the community. In doing so, Power Church has become a model for successful community impact, as well as how to create strategic partnerships with corporate, government, and non-profit organizations in order to develop innovative ways to improve quality of life for its members and the surrounding community. In 2015 Manny launched Amarillo Barrio Community Development with the expectation to alleviate poverty in Amarillo's Barrio neighborhood. They pursue this mission by offering GED classes, addiction recovery groups, student mentorships, Barrio Arts Academy, and other programs designed to empower and equip community members.
I serve as President and Creative Director of Double U Marketing & Communications, a local ad agency founded in 2009. I am blessed to help enhance our wonderful community on a number of levels, including serving on the Heal the City Board of Directors. I am beyond honored to be part of HTC's amazing mission to transform lives and provide hope.
