Qainta Harris - Board Member
Qainta is a Registered Nurse who developed a love for both volunteering and working with children when she was only kid herself. One the first jobs she ever held as a teenager was working in an after-school program for elementary school children. Her involvement with nonprofit and healthcare-focused organizations first began after spending countless hours volunteering for the Muscular Dystrophy Association during high school and college. After college, she went on to pursue a career working with nonprofit organizations and served as part of several development teams who raised funds for various programs and services throughout the Austin community. About a decade later, she changed directions to focus solely on healthcare by becoming a R.N. Now, along with being a nurse, Qainta is also a mother. It was her search for an active and educational summer camp program for her son which led her to discover ATX Kids Club. When she realized the lasting and positive impact the program had on her son, she wanted to help the organization in any way she could, and has been proudly serving on the board of ATX Kids Club since the Spring of 2016.
