Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
~ Lucille Ball
Christy Oliver Reeves has been a passionate advocate for philanthropy and community betterment for more than two decades. A seasoned nonprofit executive, Christy has extensive experience building and sustaining organizations, with a successful record that spans strategic planning, program development, fundraising and advocacy. Most recently, she served as the CEO of Single Stop USA, a national anti poverty organization that has served over 1.5 million households connecting them to over $4 billion in resources. For eight years, she served as the Director of Community Relations for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana and as the Executive Director of its foundation. Earlier in her career, Christy served as the CEO of the Girl Scouts Audubon Council. On the personal side, folks who know Reeves best speak of her charismatic personality, which some say she developed thanks to a Bachelor of Arts in Theater from Louisiana State University. She remains an active member of her local theater arts community. In November, Christy will focus her work again on empowering young women as the CEO of I AM THAT GIRL, a global movement inspiring girls to be, love, and express who they are through education, content, and community.
