Meet the TeamFRAs current Board Members
Molly was born and raised in rural New Jersey and studied accounting at Penn State. She currently works as a corporate accountant for an electronics manufacturer in Dallas. She and her husband and two children have lived in Rowlett since 2007. Their cats, Oscar & Livi, were both adopted from local shelters.
In 2015 when her son needed volunteer hours for Boy Scouts she discovered Friends of Rowlett Animals. “We were searching for a local organization that would allow a young teen to volunteer. Since we both love animals, and especially cats, FRAS was a great fit for us. We enjoy caring for the adoptable cats at PetSmart Rockwall and fostering cats and kittens in our home. The volunteer opportunities fit well with our busy schedule and we can spend quality time together doing something to better our community.”
When she’s not working, volunteering, shuttling kids to soccer practice, boy scouts or band events Molly enjoys quilting, reading, baking and watching “Survivor”.
Member at Large
Cara was born and raised in Texas. After 31 years in public education, Cara is now teaching at a private Christian school in Mesquite. She and her husband raised their two children in Rowlett and have been a part of the community since 1994. They are now empty nesters except for Oreo, their beagle/blue heeler mix who was a rescue 10 years ago. She also babysits her 3 granddogs on occasion.
In 2015, Cara began her journey with Friends of Rowlett Animals by working our biggest fundraiser, Pooch Plunge. After working events, socializing at the shelter, and helping with fundraising she became the Volunteer Coordinator where she currently serves. Supporting volunteers and making sure they know how much their time means to the homeless animals in our community is important to her. “My favorite part of FRAs, besides the obvious passion for all animals, is that there are so many different opportunities in which to get involved. There is something for everyone.
