After coming to Dallas, from Flint, Michigan in 2010, Christie Myers has spent the duration of her career focused on collective impact and community-building, providing a voice for communities that have been neglected for decades. She has worked across several sectors, developing relationships with state and local leaders, businesses, civic organizations and neighborhood advocates, realigning their focuses to create synergy in both their missions and visions.
Most recently Christie served as the General Manager for the Mayor’s Neighbor Up Dallas Organization, focused on
growth and development in the Education Corridor. Additionally, she is the co-founder and Director for the Mayor’s
Rising Star Council (MRSC), a leadership academy focused on bridging the gap between north and south Dallas,
through participation of five Dallas and Richardson ISD High Schools.
Through her work at both Neighbor Up and Dallas ISD, Christie has been focused on moving the needle in areas
including transportation, education, infrastructure and development. Christie continues to be committed to serving alongside neighborhood leaders and has built life-long relationships in communities because of her willingness to be genuine and build trust through empowerment. She considers it an honor to continue the work of Opportunity Dallas as the entire city focuses on both the development and implementation of a comprehensive housing policy.
