Anne Marie joined LFA Texas Gulf after beginning her second career in nonprofit work in 2012 at The Center in Houston. Monika, who lives with lupus, began volunteering as an ambassador for the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter and leading “Team Mo Steps To the Cure” in the annual Walk To End Lupus Now fundraiser.
