Our Dynamic Team

Dean Thompson

Executive Director

Dean decided to join the movement after she became inspired to help someone with a devastating illness find a cure. That’s right, a cure. From her perspective, what could be more profound and life-changing than that?

One of the most enlightening things about Dean is that she is dedicated, passionate, and determined to get students, investors, and community partners interested and fully engaged in the Project Life Movement.

She truly believes that philanthropy (helping others) significantly enriches one’s life. So, she spends her free-time volunteering at non-profits and serving on several boards, such as the Boards of Leadership Charlotte, Women Executives, and the Association of Fundraising Professionals.

Ann Henegar

Director of Marketing & Communications

Ann is an NC State alumni and the mother of three wonderfully energetic boys. She loves to cook, read, and travel.

If Ann had her choice, she would spend the majority of her free time with her family, relaxing on a sandy beach, while gazing at the crystal clear blue ocean in front of her.

An amazing thing about Ann is that she is on the global stem cell & bone marrow registry. Why? Well, because, she understands how important it is to save someone’s life, if you can.

She also knows how easy it is to be tested and register as a donor. It excites Ann to know the number of people she could potentially help.

Katie Fowler

Campus Coordinator

Katie is a Truman State University alumni and former college athlete. She has spent the past seven years working, as a collegiate strength and conditioning coach, most recently at the University of South Carolina.

As a result, Katie has witnessed firsthand the positive impact college athletes can have on their campuses and communities.

She is thrilled to be a member of an organization that works daily to educate others on how they can help patients suffering from blood cancers and other life-threatening blood conditions.
