Director of Communications
“We have a radical commitment to client-centeredness – that’s a big part of what drives me to do this work every day.”
Mimi Garcia provides leadership to Every Body Texas through communications, public relations, and media engagement.
As a former leader of a statewide non-profit organization, Mimi brings a broad perspective to Every Body Texas. “I’ve done a lot of things in my time – policy, organizing, community outreach, executive leadership. In this role I get to wear a lot of hats supporting a mission I’ve cared about for a long time.”
For Mimi coming to Every Body Texas was a return to her roots, “I was a sexual health peer educator in college. Getting to do this work is like coming back home, but on a broader scale – with all the knowledge and experience of nearly 20 years leading campaigns for healthcare access and public investment in our communities.”
Mimi has a Master of Public Policy degree from the Heller School of Social Policy at Brandeis University. She enjoys hiking, reading, creating, and spending time with her family in her hometown, Austin.
